Contributing to OLsuccess Week

Add your voice to the conversation!

We hope that you will tell us about your online learning experiences. Was it what you expected? Was it easier or harder than you thought it would be? What did you enjoy most? What did you dislike? What could have made it easier? Do you enjoy collaborating or communicating online with other learners? Was it a rewarding experience?

We are also interested in hearing the views of people providing online learning opportunities/courses/activities so do feel free to add your voices.

You can use any of the following ways to contribute to the conversations.

Use the hashtag #OLsuccess on your preferred social media channel such as twitter, facebook, instagram, googleplus, linked-in, etc… We welcome text, graphic, audio and video contributions… Use your imagination…

We will be pulling these together using storify.

We have set up an online discussion forum where we are posing some key questions. Please offer some answers to these.

The forum is open to the public to view and contribute. To contribute you will need to provide an email address and name. This will not make you a registered user of the site but will allow you to comment. (This policy is an attempt to encourage contributions, but this may change if the site receives too much spam).

You do not have to formally register with the site to contribute but you will be given the opportunity to do so and build a user profile. For non-registered users there will be an option in the top menu to register. This will ask for a username and email address. The system will send an email to you to set up a password. Please check your spam folder if you do not receive this. This will ask you to follow a link and enter a password.

Once registered, when you go to the forum page you will see an option to login in the top menu.

Rules of engagement are as follows:

1. Please respect the opinions and comments of others. By all means, engage in debate but any posts that include offensive language or aggressive comments will be deleted.
