Editorial Policies

e-Literate is a hobby weblog about educational technology and related topics that is maintained by Michael Feldstein and written by Michael and some of his trusted colleagues in the field of educational technology. It covers whatever is interesting to the bloggers within bounds of the time that they to devote to it, and is editorially independent from Michael’s place of employment and various professional affiliations.

Authors

e-Literate features authors that have been carefully hand picked by Michael. These are always people whom he learns from and finds personally interesting. Once invited, Michael does not edit the posts of guest authors unless they ask him to. The views that they publish are solely their own and do not represent any sort of unified editorial position of e-Literate.

In many cases, guest blogging invitations are open, meaning that the guest bloggers are free to submit future posts when they wish on whatever topics they wish. Bloggers with open invitations are referred to as “featured bloggers” and have their own bio pages on the site in the “About the Authors” menu.

Guest blogging is by invitation only. Email requests to submit guest posts will be ignored.

Copyright

All e-Literate authors retain copyright to their own works. Michael Feldstein does not claim copyright over any works published on e-Literate other than those he has authored. However, by publishing their content on e-Literate, the authors agree to release their works under a Creative Commons Attribution license. Any republication of e-Literate content must give attribution to the authors.

Advertising

Right now, e-Literate does not accept advertisements. Requests to place ads on e-Literate will be ignored.

Product Reviews

e-Literate occasionally does product reviews. However, because this is a hobby blog, we cannot promise to review your product or even to respond to your email request to be reviewed. You’re welcome to ask.

Miscellaneous Requests for Help and Information

This blog has been created out of a desire to help fellow travelers in the world of educational technology. Individual requests for help or information will be taken seriously. However, again, this is a hobby blog. Not all requests for help can be accommodated or even answered. Your request is more likely to be answered if it is polite and provides some context.

Commenting

Comments are invited but should be topical and civil. If your comment is judged inappropriate or offensive, it will be deleted. Commenters who are suspected of using fake names to preserve anonymity will be held to a significantly higher standard than those who use their real names. Comments made using fake email addresses will be deleted regardless of content, without exception.
