Elements of the Virtual Learning Commons

The chart on page 32 of Building a Learning Commons has a great, practical list of elements that can be included in a virtual learning commons, including ways to build a reading community, how to make assignments more interactive, organizing technology tools, creating KBCs for major assignments that get repeated year-to-year, and encouraging the production of user-created content. It also mentions taking design into account--perhaps not trying to have a main web page that is the entry portal for all users, but separate entrance portals for teachers, students, teacher librarians, etc.
