This is a diary of my involvement in a project on collaborative learning in the psychology department at the University of South Africa. Most recent posts below and links to previous posts on the left.
Indigenation is a nice example of a collaborative learning project where students play an active role in creating (rather than just consuming) learning materials. It focusses on First Nation Studies. Have a look at the "student-generated learning objects".

Nice article by Jay Cross on Informal Learning – the other 80%. "Most people in training programs learn only a little of the right stuff, are fuzzy about how to apply what they’ve learned, and never address who are the right people to know." By contrast: "People learn to build the right network of associates and the right level of expertise through informal, sometimes even accidental, learning that flies beneath the corporate radar. Because organizations are oblivious to informal learning, they fail to invest in it.".
