Yes thanks for this initiative, Stuart - any support for our subject is a

Whilst it is being constructed, please feel free to share resources via the
mailing list.
We, VET IDM teachers, are not as active at sharing material and initiating
discussions as some of the other VCE lists.
I'm not sure whether this is because teachers fear their material is not
good enough or whether there are issues of intellectual property or ???
Naim, you mention a wiki is user friendly, what features of a wiki make
contributions more likely eg is it the ability to edit a Wiki page that will
help overcome the reluctance of teachers to contribute materials to a
mailing list? 
I certainly understand that the visual display and organisational structure
of a Wiki is more appealing than a mailing list but what factors trigger (or
will trigger) more input from more people?
Do you think there will be any need for mailing lists in the future?
