The IEOL partnership is all about learning to use social media. Therefore, the dissemination plan centers around the use of social media. The partnership as a whole has used the following means to disseminate the project:
  • Blog

The partnership established a blog at The blog has been public from the start, and interested parties have been able to follow the progress of the partnership there. The blog has been publicized on the partner institutions' own websites.
  • Wiki

When the amount of information about courses and social media tools used increased, the partnership decided to establish this wiki to disseminate information about the experiences gained in the partnership.
  • Facebook

Once the students entered into the partnership, they wanted to establish a facebook group. This group has been a focal point of dissemination among the students and their peers.

Below are the core dissemination activities by the partners in their local communities:
