LinkedIn Discussions!

now has discussions within its groups! Assuming that you are already a member of the LinkedIn Courseware Development Group, go into LinkedIn, click Groups, scroll down to Courseware Development, and click Courseware Development (the group name itself).

The group Overview page appears, which allows you to start a new discussion directly. You can also click the Discussion tab - you can also start new discussion here, as well as add comments to existing discussions.

As you know, the LinkedIn group is by far our largest branch, and I urge all members of this group to consider adding useful and interesting discussion items!
