Description:

Thutong is the educational portal of the National Department of Education:
"
Welcome to the Thutong Portal:Delivering information, curriculum, and support materials to the South African schooling and FET College community"

You can upload/download resources to the portal and connect them to the learning outcomes and assessment standards for each subject for use by other teachers. The portal has been undergoing some changes to make it more web 2.0 enabled with discussion forums etc.

I feel we must use the portal as a free resource repository (free file sharing space) to upload and store our educational learning materials (test exams worksheets, slideshows, evidance of learner work etc) Then we can just link to the exact resource from our school websites/ blogs. So this means that we no longer have to use up mega space on our server but use the portal server's space while at the same time sharing with the added benifit of the resource being connected to the exact corresponding LO's and AS's.



Other descriptive sites/reading:
Educational value:
Resources here are connected to the Assessment standards and learning outcomes within the curriculum and as such are very useful form an educational point of view!

Rate it : As this site should be automatically be allowed through school firewalls, what should the poll have?
