On Thursday 15th April I’m speaking at the First International Congress about E-Learning and social inclusion
My communication will be 30 minutes long within the framework of Thursday afternoon (15.45-17.15) session II: Problem solving methodology for e-learning. Ain’t no complete communications programme yet: promise to publish at once when noticed.
Though I’m still thinking on what I exactly want to say, my mental scheme is as follows:
The online volunteer: knowledge manager and transmitter
- Taxonomny of the online volunteer
- The potential virtual volunteer as the eternal excluded from cooperation for development: a “market” to discover
- The virtual volunteer en his knowledge centered role: store, organize, create and transfer knowledge
Practical case: e-Learning for e-Inclusion
A three pieces puzzle:
- Content and didactic materials
- e-Learning platform
- Syllabus, coordination and teaching
Main characteristics of online volunteering centered e-learning projects:
- The e-volunteer as the knowledge transmitter, without time nor space boundaries
- South-south cooperation: the e-volunteer placed at the target social framework
- Economic sustainability: online volunteering costs, replication opportunities, multiplier effects of the model
Can I set up a project like this?
- The experience of the Campus for Peace
- Free content: GNU licenses, Creative Commons, MIT OpenCourseWare and Learning Objects repositories
- Free e-learning platforms: Moodle, Claroline, MIT Caddie.net, other F/OSS supports
- Virtual volunteers: Onlinevolunteers.org, others.
