Please note this is an open page for the group and the community: anyone is welcome to help edit, restructure, or completely re-envision. All help is welcome.

Please contact me if you have any questions, thoughts or ideas. 

Initial Brainstorming

Tasks:

  1. To begin to identify key areas of interest for a Distance Ed group, taking from, expanding upon, or adding to ideas we noted at the Denver conference. - See linked notes.
  2. Collect information on who in the community is interested in participating in this group and some demographics about the programs they represent - probably you if you're reading this.
  3. Begin to distinguish which areas will be priorities for the short and long term. This will be an ongoing conversation.
