Michael Nelson is still the most progressive teacher I have met. Recently he posted an update to his work in developing his web design course offered at the Blue Mountains Campus of TAFE NSW in Australia.

Michael was one of the first to jump on the wikiversity initiative and develop a resource for learning web design. Now Michael and his students each year maintain that resource – this year they are working on a levels design for the learning.

Michael has also recently developed a few flash cards for learning things about basic html and css. Personally I think this is an excellent way to get and keep acquainted with the basics. Last year Michael and a student were toying with networked first person shooter games to learn this stuff. Would be great to see a coming together of these two approaches.

And through Mike I’ve discovered so many handy tools, like Google Spread Sheet. Well worth keeping track of Michael and his student’s work.
