Teclet is a new course hosting…company?…where you can get the ability to create free classrooms (private or public) and access to various other tools (a common wiki, OUBlogs, video tutorials, etc.). The community is still very small, but if you’re looking for a place to play with Moodle 1.9 or to put up a private/public course then it might be a good option. Signup is free and easy. Course creation is just an email confirmation away.
The pros? Teclet is easy to access and looks like it has a good foundation for building a community; of course it is Moodle 1.9.
The cons? aside from the extraordinarily altruistic about page language: “There are many ways to take advantage of Teclet’s services and they will always be free. We strive to provide knowledge to everyone in the world. With education becoming more expensive from private schools, to certification classes, and even other websites, how will we ever learn to share knowledge with one another? Knowledge should be free.” There’s no company info posted.
