Aus-e-learning

Last year, Jeff Goldman published Free US History eLearning in honour of Independence Day.

I thought it was such a wonderful idea, I have decided to do something similar in honour of Australia Day.

I hope you find the following Aussie-flavoured e-learning resources to be informative, fun and “bonza”…

  1. Love the list Ryan! Sitting in a conference in London on Australia Day- this allowed me to easily share some of Australia with our european friends.

    Maybe this could be included somewhere.

    BTW- did I see your name on an influential list recently?

    Cheers

    Craig

    BTW- did

  2. Crikey, that ad sets us back 40 years… literally!

    So you’re sitting in a conference in London on Australia Day? Shouldn’t you be at The Church? ;o)

    And I suppose you’re referring to Asia-Pacific’s list of e-learning “movers and shakers”. Haha, yes, there’s something to be said for being top of mind.

    :o)
