We at the Beyond Distance Research Alliance are hosting an online community of practitioners and researchers interested in e-learning and learning technologies. The purpose of the community, called ELKS (E-Learning and Knowledge Sharing) is to share resources and expertise via online events such as seminars about using technology to improve teaching and learning.
ELKS Community is affiliated with the United Nations Global Alliance for ICT and Development (UN-GAID).
Membership of the ELKS Community is open to individuals and institutions. We anticipate that members participate in online discussions and host online events related to their area of expertise.
More about ELKS is available from the website at : http://elkscommunity.wetpaint.com/
