Now I have a request…… who would like to collaborate to develop Notebooks for courses? I must admit I tried to do this previously but the teaching community were at the early stage of becoming familiar with the technology. I feel this has moved on. So going to try again and use what I have learned.
Drop me a message and lets start collaborating and sharing the workload.
