The web 2.0 and the so-called e-learning 2.0 have placed a new, huge world full of information and state-of-the-art, free educational resources at out fingertips. However, all this enormous stream of knowledge is sometimes overwhelming and our capacity to sail across that ocean of information is limited. RSS and other tools help to some extent, but we still need to be guided.

I have an e-dream 2.0: a world-wide, multi-lingual, well categorized, easy-to-use, repository of educational materials of all kinds that helps us share and find relevant resources and information easily. In this issue I really miss the help of educational authorities, who should promote official sites where:

1. The educational resources were categorized by different tags so that they were easy to find.

2. Educators and e-learning designers could co-operate within social networks.

3. Students could also have access to self-study materials.

4. We could all learn from each other.

I hope such a site will be created soon.

I share your dream. I have started my own site as my attempt to organize what I do and the work of others like me. We are in the baby stages, but I am directed by the same vision. I would love your comments. I believe that collaboration is key and hope for support from our educators and students. So far so good!

Thanks for sharing!
