Call for Contributors - Encyclopedia of Online Education Steven L. Danver,
editor Sage Publications/Mesa Verde Publishing

We are pleased to announce the development of the Encyclopedia of Online
Education, a first-of-its-kind comprehensive treatment of the world of
online education. This three-volume project will produce a thorough,
engaging reference work on the ever-expanding field of online education,
which has many aspects that are not well understood. This work will serve to
remedy this with authoritative materials for users at every position within
the online educational structure, from students to administrators. More so
than the technology itself, though, the use of such technology to facilitate
effective learning by students will be the central focus. The perspective,
much like the subject itself, will be interdisciplinary, and the content
should prove useful to administrators, teaching faculty, and students alike.

We are currently assembling a team of qualified scholars to produce this
important work. If you possess an earned doctorate and experience with
online education, we would appreciate the opportunity to have you contribute
to the project! Please sign up at
http://www.mesaverdepublishing.com/online-edu-list.htm, and we will be happy
to send you further information about available entries, remuneration, and
due dates. Thank you in advance for your interest, we look forward to
working with you to produce an informative, academically rigorous, and
useful volume.

Hello EDTECH List Members,

At the following URL, you can read a short article that proposes the idea
for awarding digital diplomas to graduates in addition to the traditional
diploma that is printed on paper.

Please let me know what you think of the idea.

Thank you

Thiru.

Thiru,

This is such an interesting idea!  It sounds like a combination of digital
portfolio, LinkedIn, scrapbook and blog, which would be a wonderful legacy
for future generations. 


However I'm concerned that we are always hearing about how mainstream sites
are compromised and the more information that we put out there the more we
leave ourselves open to identify theft or scams. 

What about adding medical records? I'm actually hoping that medical
histories will become more centralized, in order to facilitate more holistic
care. It would also help future generations by knowing their family medical
histories.

Looking forward to hearing more about your ideas, Shayne
