I serve as the Academic Co-Chair for the Master of Arts in Learning Technologies Program at the Graduate School of Education and Psychology at Pepperdine University. The Master's program is 85% online. I use a range of network tools in my teaching including Sakai, Wikispaces, GoogleSites, Skype, Etherpad, Google+ and multimedia tools for special projects. In the spirit of open source, I provide access to to my course designs and some of the tools. Sakai is our protected spaces for knowledge building and is not open to the public.
