My colleague Tarmo Toikkanen and I were invited to present LeMill in a conference that took place this Thursday in Brno, Czech Republic. Besides LeMill there were presentations and workshops about CALIBRATE portal and new Czech learning resource portal RVP. Our presentation slides are available in SlideShare.
In last few months Czech teachers have been quite active in LeMill. As a result Czech language is the second largest language for published web pages in LeMill. It is interesting to see that teachers create different kind of content in different countries. In Estonia typical learning resources are worksheets and presentations. Czech teachers have so far published mostly lesson plans. One of the reasons for this is that they had a national competition for lesson plans and all the works were submitted through LeMill. Hopefully they will start to use other possibilities of LeMill as well.
This week marked also next step in LeMill’s growth — we have reached 2000 members. The growth has been faster than we expected and our current server is having hard times with this amount of users. We are looking for a hosting solution for lemill.net and hope to solve these problems in the near future.
