I have updated the wiki to reflect the new social site related to
Koha: http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Koha_on_Social_Networks

Just wanted to remind you all about this page so you can see the other
networks where Koha has a presence.

My function in that team is not yet clearly defined, but I will have more of an e-learning perspective onto Koha than a purely librarian's view of how to use Koha or a developer's view, and among others investigate ideas of how Koha could be integrated into learning management systems and e-portfolios, in particular Moodle (www.moodle.org) and Mahara (www.mahara.org) respectively as Catalyst is actively involved in the development of these two open source software products.

> Chris and I already started to bookmark the first resources. We invite everybody to join the group and add further bookmarks. The easiest way to do that once you have created a Diigo account and got accepted into the group is to install the Diigo toolbar. Whenever you bookmark a Koha resource, you can immediately share it with a group, in our case the "Everything Koha" group (You can also share it with multiple groups.). It helps to find this bookmark if you tag it.
> Once you have selected the group you want to share your bookmark with, tags that have already been used in the group are recommended to you. You can also provide a description about the resource. That is particularly useful if the title of the web page does not provide a whole lot of information about the web page content. If you are stuck somewhere in Diigo, you may want to check out their tutorials.
> A note on alert settings: The default settings for alerts on new content in the group is "immediate". That means you will get an email shortly after somebody added a resource. If you do not want to receive that email or change the settings to an email once a day or once a week to keep tabs on new additions to the group, please change your alert settings on the web page of the group.
> If you only want to browse the bookmarks, you can also do that and do not need a Diigo account.
