WK 2 What is flexible learning?
Leigh was really helpful and I actually took his advice to start using RSS news feed (i.e. Google reader), it’s a wonderful tool to have for this course!!!
WK 3 Why we need flexible learning
Leigh’s comments really opened my mind up about FL, I was been simple minded to think FL was only done through the internet. I then read all the comments and discussions about some of the issues, so maybe I should get more credit for “respond to comments”?
WK 4 Examples of Flexible Learning - distance, correspondence, online
It wasn’t successful in my area of teaching, but some improvement could be done.
WK 5 Examples of Flexible Learning - part time, block, blended
I think these are great way of learning, definitely beneficial for lots of students. I was surprised no comments have been made.
WK 6 Examples of Flexible Learning - open, networked, RPL
Again I think those are the great way of learning. No comments left either.
WK 7 Planning for flexible teaching and learning This post wasn’t posted until later.WK 8 Issues with flexible learning - The modern Internet
There are some advantages and disadvantages of using modern internet.
WK 9 Issues with flexible learning - Sustainability
Huh...I didn’t seem to make a posting which I thought I did…
WK 10 Issues with flexible learning - access and equity

WK 11 Issues with flexible learning - Cultural diversity
I came from a different culture, so I have got lots to share.
WK 12 Flexible learning in educational organizations
Otago Polytechnic is really committed to FL and my developing plan should be facilitating the FL for students.
WK 13 National and International support for flexible learning development
I have not yet had a chance to seek for financial support.
