What are the WCET Email Lists (now WCET Communities)?
WCETDiscuss is a moderated discussion community reserved for WCET members. The group puts you in touch with higher education professionals from institutions and organizations in the U.S. and Canada. Have a question about how others address a policy issue or design solutions to certain digital learning challenges? Post via the platform or send your question and get ideas and input from your peers. Participants can login to MIX or reply directly via email.
WCETNews is a moderated community used to distribute WCET's popular Article Digest, job postings from WCET members, announcements, and breaking news of general interest to our members. News also includes the popular Movie Reviews from Executive Director, Russ Poulin.
MIX houses a variety of resources created just for WCET members, such as our new topic focused Closer Look guides created to provide essential information for digital learning in higher education. Closer Look guides include topic overviews, DEI implications, and accessibility considerations.
WCET Ask an Expert
Featured experts will take part in a Q&A with members via the Ask the Expert community. Often the experts are recent webcast speakers, and members can ask follow-up questions to the experts asynchronously. Join the community by contacting WCET.
