About this Website

This site is designed to serve the NMC Community by providing information on the projects, people and technologies that are driving learning forward. The site is being run on the open source content management system Drupal 6, and acts as the hub of all NMC communications, events, and activities.

User roles:
To set up member and guest accounts. If you work at any of our member institutions, we ask that you create a member account so you can take advantage of member benefits like posting jobs and events and blogging. If you're just visiting, creating a guest account will enable you to download all NMC publications.

To download our publications. The NMC requires a log-in for you to download reports and communiques from our growing library of publications. We just want to know a little bit about who's interested in our work. We'll never contact or follow up with you unless you expressly let us know that you want to hear from us. You'll still be able to download, share, and adapt the publications however you see fit under the Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution License.

To receive NMC and edtech news. Receive our monthly e-newsletter and other timely edtech information by providing us with your email address and opting in to communications from us. It is optional and you can unsubscribe at any time.
