RWLO Learning Community

The RWLO Learning Community Listserv serves as a forum for community college faculty and others to share information about the development and use of Real World Learning Objects (RWLOs). All are welcome to join the listserv and participate in discussions. Instructions for subscribing and posting messages are below.

The RWLO Learning Community Podcast is another forum for sharing information about RWLOs. These are audio podcasts that anyone can easily create using a telephone. The podcasts are available to listen to using your computer, any mp3 player, or using iTunes. Instructions for recording and accessing the podcasts are below.

  • How to Change Your Email Address

    The best and fastest way to change your email address (on any listserv) is to subscribe to the listserv using your new email address. If your old email address is still active, you can also unsubscribe from the list using that email. Any inactive emails get bounced back and that email address will eventually be removed from the listserv. Subscribing and unsubscribing is done automatically by computer and only take a few minutes.

    Check the instructions for subscribing and unsubscribing so that you send your email message to the correct address. It is different from the email address used to post messages.
