I’m familiar with very large and reach blogrooms were I teach computer literacy in an almost asinchronous way but these blogrooms were all started with a couple of conventional lectures. That is, I enter in a classroom and transform it in a blogroom, sometimes a set of classrooms in a blogroom.
In the AIMN09, an experimental course on WEB 2 at the italian Congress of Nuclear Medicine that will be held in Firenze in March 2009, is different because people are supposed to get involved directly from the Web starting with an email and not with a live discussion. Moreover, they are not students but professionals, so they have little time. Moreover they are invited to begin the course 6 months before the congress.
Well, it is an experiment. The total community amounts to about 1200 pepople. The first email was sent at the beginning of September. We have 7 inscriptions, so far.
This post (and perhaps some next ones) is visible both to the CCK08 and the AIMN09 communities. This is an experiment too. In October a standard blogroom will join.
Thus, dear AIMN09 participants, I have just added a growing path (Il percorso in divenire) section in our wiki.
Please go to the first hint to grow your path …
