Hi Donna,

Thanks for your kind comments! :) This course is affording me a great 
opportunity to learn the digital skills required for training K-12 public 
school teachers in Brazil to use and create OER, which is going to be my 
doctoral dissertation (a Design-based research). I just recently concluded 
my 2nd year of doctoral studies at Athabasca University and my area of 
study is distance education. About the padlet tool, it's extremely easy to 
use, intuitive and free. However, you have to register for it.  The only 
downside to the padlet tool is that I wasn't able to include a link or an 
image of it in Wikieducator. I used my WordPress blog to do this. Padlet 
allows you to share the storyboard as an image and then you can incorporate 
it in your blog. This doesn't work for Wikieducator. Apparently there are 
open content issues with the padlet tool.
