Announcing: A new sharedwork.org site
Posted on Monday 25th July 2011, 6:36am by Jill Hudson
Announcing: At new SharedWork.org site will be launched between August 19 - 23, 2011.

The SharedWork site has been reconfigured to be a more user-friendly. Based on your feedback we added more functions (e.g. WIKI, blogs, video capability) and improved the existing one (e.g., easier way to post documents, navigate the website, link pages, etc.). We hope that the new site will simplify your efforts to build a community of practice. We think that you will love this new technology, but no technology can substitute for the relationships and shared learning  that is the essence of your community.  We need your help to make the technical changes and we need
your active involvement build the habit of sharing and learning that this
technology is meant to support.

The new sharedwork site will be available late August 2011 at www.sharedwork.org . You will be able to access the new sharedwork site with your current username and password.
