    • 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.

    • 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 than ever!

    I'd suggest making it into a bookmark - more people will see it that way. Just add a bookmark (from the tools menu) pointing to that link, with a title and the description you provide, You could draw still more attention to it by posting a message...

    HA-you got me! I didn't realize posters receive an email whenever a response is made. So perhaps people really will follow up on these postings. In fact I'm going to delete my previous comment as it was silly.

    • 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 experience.  I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you.

    • 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 concerns with them.

    • I am a MAIS student and this is my first time on the landing. I want to join the  Jane Place group which I found but I see nothing posted - but I know she has posted someting for me to respond to. I thought the probelm might be that I am not logged in and although the log in instuctions tell me to log in at top right hand side , I only see "log out" and no where to sign in and enter my ID.  Can you help please?

      thanks
