Blogging is one of the eventual realization of web 2.0 technologies. It is the driving engine behind this online information revolution. Thousands of blogs are created everyday and for different purposes. Some people blog to make money, some to share their voice with the world, some to immortalize their life events and diaries, and others blog just to vex and scam people. The tremendous ease of use of a blog has made it a web tool of great potential in education.

Google Debuts Education Tool Oppia for Teaching Others Google today launched a new online education tool called Oppia, currently an open source project with the goal of making it easy for anyone to create online interactive activities that others can learn from. Called explorations, these activities can be built and contributed to by multiple people from around the world through a Web interface, without any programming required. Here is how Google describes its latest venture: Oppia does this by modeling a mentor who poses questions for the learner to answer.
100% free! No trial periods, no freemium plans, no advertisements. Writing, editing, or learning from explorations on oppia.org is 100% free of charge! Additionally, all lessons on oppia.org are licensed CC-BY-SA, which means that you are allowed to copy, modify, and reuse lesson content. Want to host an Oppia instance yourself, or make modifications to it?

Être en mesure, avec la communauté Sankoré, de participer efficacement à atteindre l'Objectif du Millénaire pour le Développement (OMD) visant à donner à tous les enfants, d'ici 2015, garçons et filles, partout dans le monde, les moyens d’achever un cycle complet d’études primaires. Pour Sankoré la révolution de l’éducation numérique peut contribuer à relever ce défi. Dès lors que le coût des équipements en Classes Numériques Sankoré (CNS) s’effondre et que les Ressources d’Enseignement Numériques Libres (RNEL) sont créées pour tous les niveaux d'enseignement et pour toutes les disciplines et partagées gratuitement. Participer à Sankoré, c'est vouloir développer la solidarité pour l'éducation libre et gratuite pour tous, grand enjeu pour le développement. C'est affirmer qu'avec le numérique le savoir éducatif peut être librement et gratuitement partagé. C'est croire à la créativité et à la générosité de tous les enseignants.
