Why did I mention grey literature before?

As a wonderful transition into this:

UNO NOW OFFERS AN ACCREDITED COURSE ON GREY LITERATURE http://www.greynet.org/greynethome/news.html

The University of New Orleans (UNO) has approved a proposal by GreyNet that will offer this fall semester a distance education course for undergraduate/graduate students. GreyNet hopes that such an endeavor will provide new avenues for young researchers to enter and concentrate on this field of information. The structure of distance education allows that the various stakeholders need not be physically present within one academic institution, but instead are brought together in a joint venture; one that guarantees students access to courseware, qualified instruction, and course credit.

A course syllabus http://www.greynet.org/images/Syllabus_Grey_Literature.pdf and e-reader geared to a distance education program have been drafted and will be implemented during the fall semester 2007.

Those interested to enroll in this course and who are not UNO students, please contact Mr. Brain McDonald at (+1 504 280-7114) or email him at
(bmcdonal@uno.edu) He will be pleased to “fast track” you through the registration process.

My name is Michael Sean Gallagher. I am a Lecturer in Digital Education at the Centre for Research in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh. I am Co-Founder and Director of Panoply Digital, a consultancy dedicated to ICT and mobile for development (M4D); we have worked with USAID, GSMA, UN Habitat, Cambridge University and more on education and development projects. I was a researcher on the Near Futures Teaching project, a project that explores how teaching at The University of Edinburgh unfold over the coming decades, as technology, social trends, patterns of mobility, new methods and new media continue to shift what it means to be at university. Previously, I was the Research Associate on the NERC, ESRC, and AHRC Global Challenges Research Fund sponsored GCRF Research for Emergency Aftershock Forecasting (REAR) project. I was an Assistant Professor at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (한국외국어대학교) in Seoul, Korea. I have also completed a doctorate at University College London (formerly the independent Institute of Education, University of London) on mobile learning in the humanities in Korea.
