Dwellings is a new kind of virtual learning environment, a kind of collaborative web browser incorporating chat, resource sharing and simple resource creation. It is based on the dynamics of cities, following from the work of Jane Jacobs. You could think of it as a cross between a MOO, a Wiki, a learning object repository and something else (social software).

I am a professional learner, employed as a Full Professor and Associate Dean, Learning & Assessment, at Athabasca University, where I research lots of things broadly in the area of learning and technology, and I teach mainly in the School of Computing & Information Systems. I am a proud Canadian, though I was born in the UK. I am married, with two grown-up children, and three growing-up grandchildren. We all live in beautiful Vancouver.
