    Overall it’s a powerful proposal. I like your specific criteria for the tools we provide, and I think it’s better to talk about why WordPress. It will also help to list some other institutions’ working WordPress sites as examples. I’m not sure how ‘academic’ this proposal needs to be. I would also add some literature sources to back up why blogging or open pedagogy promotes learning and students engagement. I have included some sources in your earlier Etherpad.

    Just a quick clarification here – you used the term ‘digital learning commons’ in the URL and your email title, but it has been used to refer to the digital form (web presence) of the potential physical Learning Commons here. I think you used it to refer to the virtual space for open pedagogy in general (correct me if I’m wrong). When I first saw the title, I thought you were trying to propose the web presence of the Learning Commons. I just want to make sure people won’t be confused by that.

    So good to see a process for online learning development that starts from fundamental values and learning goals rather than available technologies. Excited to see how this progresses.
