Education 2.0

I've recently discovered a website that I hope will thrive and flurish. is a brilliant site and while the concept is not new (it is reminicent of Blackboard and Edline), it is FREE! allows anyone to develop an online classroom for anytime anywhere learning.

In the example below you can see that immediately upon creating a class, the "teacher" is given multiple pages with which to work. Including resources, lessons, a calendar, a gradebook, a forum, a chat, a wiki, and the list just goes on.

In a future episode of Dr. Disk at Work, I will be setting up a "Classroom" that I will be integrating with Certification Central (one of my many projects). This wll be a guided tour through the entire process. Please check back to see when the episode will be scheduled.
