Received by Edu Mailinglist,

We are pleased to inform you about the second consultation meeting of the WSIS Action Line?C7 “E-learning”, which will be held in Geneva on the 23rd of May 2007 from 15:00 to 18:00. You will receive an invitation by UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Communication and Information soon.

This meeting will follow the meeting you attended on 18 October 2006 held at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, in the framework of the follow-up to the Tunis Agenda for the Information Society.

As the official facilitator for the Action Line C7 “E-learning”, UNESCO is currently working on the creation of an easy-access online interface that will facilitate a constant dialogue between our different partners. You will all be able to use this interface as a permanent tool for consultation and interaction. This tool will allow us to discuss, organize common initiatives, share experiences and monitor the work carried out in the framework of our line of action.

The meeting scheduled for the 23 May 2007 has two main objectives. Firstly, we hope to discuss ways in which this interface will be used and how we can organize our teamwork in concrete terms. We will then spend part of the meeting presenting concrete projects and initiatives carried out in the framework of our line of action.

In order to stimulate the discussions and have a clearer idea of your different viewpoints prior to the meeting of 23 May, we suggest you to reply to two questions on our forum which is already up and running at:, Forum of the WebWorld Portals Community.

Please join and comment there on the following questions and issues:

Further elaborate the seven E-learning subtopics as well as who should be in charge of leading the discussion on each subtopic. Do you have a project to discuss during the second half of the meeting? (The projects are subject to certain criteria which will be explained in the discussion forum)

As the UNESCO focal point for the Action Line C7 “E-learning”, we will be happy to answer any queries you may have and provide you with further information.

Thank you once again for your cooperation, Cédric Wachholz and Tarek Shawki
