We would like to thank Steve Hargadon and Blackboard Collaborate for the exceptionally generous access to this valuable virtual classroom. We had our beginnings in Learn Central and now have our own blog, our own brand and our own series of educational webinars.

In the past year we have posted 160 articles about our popular Australia eSeries.
We have conducted over 200 webinars – scheduled, presented and moderated by individual volunteers who willingly give their time to provide insights into a myriad of elearning strategies for teachers in schools, TAFEs, Learn Locals, ACE centres and Universities.

We have several types of webinars – see the range and the details and recordings in the Our Shows tab. We have also aggregated our webinars at this new site for your convenience:

eT@lking is held each Wednesday evening at 8 pm AEDT and is moderated by Anne Mirtschin (Hawkesdale P-12) and Carole McCulloch ( In these sessions we value the cross cultural exchanges between teachers in all education disciplines on a wide ranging schedule of topics. Our aim is to highlight and discuss the emerging issues and practices in e-learning in schools, universities, adult learning centres and TAFEs.

Community Connect is a weekly online series of webinars every Thursday evening at 8pm managed and coordinated by Junita Lyon who invites a team of educators from all sectors of education throughout Australia and the world to participate. This team of educators share their knowledge and skills about how to use web tools to develop innovative and engaging classroom practice. Community Connect is a synchronous Community of Practice of educators, learning and sharing.

Tech Talk Tuesdays is a weekly session held each Tuesday from 4-5 pm and is co-ordinated by Anne Mirtschin. It’s aim is to connect educators on a global basis, enabling them to share conversations centred around learning. The webinars are a mix of formal presentations and informal discussions  based on a theme or topics as requested by participants. The aim is to empower educators in some aspect of using technology in learning and enable networks to develop over all tiers and levels of education.

Serendipity/Fine Focus is a weekly series held each Friday from 9-10 am AEST and 7-8 am AWST managed and moderated by Jo Hart. This series provides an alternating focus from week to week enabling participants to choose the topic of the day in Serendipity and to participate in Fine Focus events where the presenters and topics are selected from a wide range of popular educational topics. Details of these webinars can also be located at Jo’s own blog.

So please post in your blog a nomination for the Australia e-Series – we know you want to help us!
