What is your interest in eLearning?
I've been involved in e-Learning since I was a medical student in the late 90s. Since then I've been running a company developing elearning courses for doctors and I've set up a number of social networking websites. The largest is New Media Medicine, which has over 50,000 members (mostly UK medical students and doctors). I also work part time as Senior Clinical Research Fellow at the National Institute for Health Innovation at the University of Auckland in New Zealand.

Hi Chris, thanks. I'm excited to be a part of this community, I think it might just be the first started by a kiwi on the topic of e-learning and possibly the first online community on education in NZ? I'm attending the Digital Technology Symposium in Auckland this month, will I see you there?

Wow that sounds great. On my to do list, is to look into how Second Life projects can be integrated into our schools, I know a few schools overseas are using them already.
