The results from the recent poll (see panel on right) are interesting. You've given a clear thumbs-up to occasional online meetings. So, I'd like to give this a try.
The most widely used online communication program is Skype so I propose to use this. You can download it here.
I plan to organise monthly meetings on a particular theme such as the HNC Computing Graded Unit and the support materials for the new NC awards. These meetings would also provide you with an opportunity to "meet the developers" - the people working behind the scenes on developing new awards.
So please download Skype and look out (on this blog) for the notification about the first meeting which will take place later this month.
