Online network for Australian educators

For some time the Australian governments funded Edna service has been providing online resources for Australian educators, including ones on how to do online education. They have now added facilities for educators to create their own professional profile, do a blog and have online discussions with others. I have been trying out the beta version for a few weeks, and while limited in function, it works well. Recommended: http://me.edu.au/.

My profile is at: <https://me.edu.au/p/tworthington>.

From "About me.edu.au":
