I was asked today about access to online professional development. I realised I hadn’t refreshed my learnshifting blog entry on this for a while and thought it was time to do so…
So in no particular order are 15 sites that every teacher, learner, student should check out if they have that learning feeling.
http://Lynda.com and http://coursera.com would be a start point and as I am an advocate of both Adobe and Microsoft solutions because of the employability skills and tools they offer, be sure to check out and sign up for the free access to their excellent education exchanges.
