Dear Daniel,
How are things?
I hope that 2008 will be a great year for you.
We rarely have any news about Bulgaria in
Swedish media (it is a big world) but recently
I heard that you have had quite a lot of snow.
So do we of course.
Produce a book?
I have been pondering upon your book proposal.
I don't know if the proposal still stands but here
are some of my ideas.
Title: E+Learning - everything for everyone
Major aim
To promote and enable broad mainstream adoption
of e+learning. This necessarily involves identifying a
heterogenous target group of stakeholders.
What kind of book?
It should be both a reference book and an elementary practice
book bridging the gap between the front line scientific level and
the level of the now e+learning illiterates.
Characteristics of the book
The book needs to offer authoritative interactive edutainment.
It has to be comprehensive, comprehensible and easy, funny
and inspiring to use. I do not propose employing or copying
some existing model (template) used by others in order to
enable multiple books. The form must be developed for this
particular project.
You and I do not necessarily have to author everything ourselves.
We could also be editors coordinating the work of others.
One book or a library of books?
This is a huge, and dynamic field of knowledge. One thick book
could be too &quot;heavy&quot; so a series of books covering various topics
could be a better option.
It should be possible to provide supplements to the book without
re-writing the whole thing and force people to buy new copies.
Safari offers an inspiring example of what could be done to
expand the concept of a book.
To me it seems natural to suggest a collaboration with
Packt pub about this.
Pedagogical implications
Obviously you can learn a lot from reading text, autodidactically
but we should offer extended access to these outsights, insights,
competencies, skills and capacities.
Multiple complementary sources
to mastering e+learning
We can set up websites for the book to keep it updated.
Such already exist, so what do we want to add? Examples:
Instruction Design System
E-learning Handbook
Online courses
We could have e.g. Moodle-based courses to support the book readers.
Thus they could develop in a social form and guided by a pedagogical
strategy. This would enable the building of potentially fruitful social and
professional networks.
Events, conferences
We could arrange international (global) events based on all these
assets suggested to make knowledge about e+learning accessible.
What do you make of all this? Looking forward to your responses,
Your MoodleMoot contribution
We have prolonged the submission of papers till Jan 31.
However it would be nice to see an outline of what you
would like to speak about sooner than that so that we
can reflect and communicate iteratively about it.
All the best!
Anders Berggren

Worth pondering upon
Thoughts must be given time.
Relating to other people must be given time.
Rome wasn't built in one day and there were
a number of people helping out doing it.
Nobody/nothing is perfect but it can be good
enough anyway.
Best regards an hope to see you at the Moot!
