    That's awesome Jon.  I will check that out. Thanks, Clova

    Welcome to the Landing, Clova! There's a great group on accessibility that is worth joining if you are interested in disability services. It may be a useful way to connect with others who share that interest at AU, and maybe share some ideas and...

    This is my first visit to the landing and my first course through Athabasca.  I am hoping to make some connections with other people in the human services world; specifically in disability services, however all connections will add to my...

    Why, thank you! The Landing continues to grow - those figures from a year or two ago are significantly higher now (we are approaching 7000 users, for instance, and have peaked at well over 20,000 external visitors some months). And we need it more...

    Hi my fellow adventurers.  I really loved Jon's presentation -- well done. Engaging in meaningful dialogue over time with our online community -- awesome.  I continue to study and write in many forum settings on the internet and Athabasca...

    welcome Marsha! Facilitating this type of communication is exactly why we created the Landing for members of the AU community. Do remember to complete some fields on your profile to help others know and connect with you.  and of course...

    Hello all and Wow! This is my first ever post to anything with this course. Thus far the entire process looks very interesting and the connection with other people is a wonderful resource and support idea. I hope to connect with people to learn...

    Having issues viewing Landing on mobile. Is there a mobile version?
  • The Landing published a blog post Content-by-tag widget back again, and new group activity options February 10, 2014 - 2:51pm
    We have rolled out an emergency bug fix, so that the site crash caused by one or two configurations of the content-by-tag widget should not reoccur.At the same time we have made some great improvements to the 'Group activity' tool in groups....
  • The Landing's toolset is very flexible indeed and there are many overlaps in functionality between its tools, so it can often be hard to choose between the available tools when you are sharing something. This is one of the reasons it can feel...

    @Jon - very accurate description. For those who do not mind reading lengthy posts, I will include below a part of my post which describes COMP650 through my eyes as a student, written when I was taking the course. Bear in mind that at the time I was...
  • Jon Dron commented on the file Video: decreasing the distance October 16, 2013 - 10:23am
    Thanks all. In answer to Mark and Merlyn, it looks like I need to produce another presentation about ways the Landing is and can be used in taught courses! There have been some notable successes as well as unsuccessful experiments. In brief,...
  • an unauthenticated user of the Landing commented on the file Video: decreasing the distance October 16, 2013 - 3:02am
    Hi Jon, That is a great presentation. I teach finance courses in the Faculty of Business. Any ideas about how to integrate student-student and student-professor interactions into an essentially instruction-based course? We have discussion forums in...
  • Mark Crawford commented on the file Video: decreasing the distance October 15, 2013 - 6:32pm
    Great presentation Jon!  I would just say that if you want buy-in from the broader community,you will need some more examples that are explicitly individualized study , continuous-enrollment courses with 100 or less annual enrollments. Once...

    Thank you Sasa. Your comment is as powerful as Jon's convincing video and gives authentic voice to his arguments.  Indeed we have been surprised at the length of time to get "buy in" from AU staff and students, and as you suggest it likely...

    Beautiful! When I was using the Landing as a part of my COMP650 course, weekly reflection posts were necessary. Recently I found myself in the position where I felt the urge to write a reflection post in a course being conducted through Moodle,...

    • Hi my fellow adventurers.  I really loved Jon's presentation -- well done. Engaging in meaningful dialogue over time with our online community -- awesome.  I continue to study and write in many forum settings on the internet and Athabasca University was a great bridge to my present work online.  I still have my day work, in counselling, but my online work is global and ever expanding. I'm grateful for the AU connection and the landing, that is https:/landing@athabascaU.ca.  We are a valuable collective and will create for years to come.

    Hi Oluremi That's a difficult question to ask here as there are many courses that are using the Landing, many tens of thousands of posts of many different kinds, and hundreds of different groups! A good starting point would be to run a search for...
