“Facilitating online communities” is an online course organised by the Otago Polytechnic in New Zeland. The course started on the 28th July and will be facilitated by Leigh Blackall who will guide the participants along 17 weeks. It can be attended in two different ways, formally and informally. In formal terms this course is rated at level 7 according to the New Zeland Qualification Authority.
I am glad to participate in this course because it means an excellent opportunity to aquire the skills in an area that interests me very much. I would like to get a formal certification for this course but I am not sure if I can cope with it. We will see that later. I hope to aquire the required skills to become an online facilitator and learn a lot more through the interaction with the other participants in the course.
