e-Learning 2.0 and quality

What is e-Learning 2.0? 

According to Graham Attwell, it represents the move from read-only applications to read-write applications. Therefore, it makes the difference to both teachers and learners in interaction..

How is e-Learning related to Googlios?

According to José Rodríguez, Googlios is a 21st -century approach to Teaching, Learning and Assessment.
According to Alex Ambrose, Googlio is a hybrid next generation e-portfolio that utilizes emerging open, social , web 2.0, and Google applications such as blogs, wikis and social networks and software to create a student created and controlled personal learning environment and lifelong content management system and can be shared and viewed from different perspectives, within various contexts, and for multiple puposes. It is a free and easy to use portfolio web site for individuals to design a space, story, and system that functions as a workplace and showcase for learners to collect, select, reflect, and publish. 

It is based on a model that demonstrates relationships between emerging tools and learning theories and between Personal Learning Environments (PLEs), Personal Learning Networks (PLNs), and ePortfolios. By using Google Sites as a main dashboard that “mashes up” multiple Google Apps like Blogger, Youtube, Google Reader, Google Maps, Google Docs, and iGoogle into an ePortfolio, students can build and organize their own Personal Learning Environment (PLE) simultaneously with “building bridges” through their Personal Learning Network (PLN)–all while supporting e-portfolio authentic assessment. One last word of caution: “Googlios: A 21st-Century Approach to Teaching, Learning, and Assessment” seeks to ignite an educational renaissance based on Bloom's Taxonomy.

I think Bloom´s taxonomy applied to Googlio makes sense. I am working on blogs and wikis and I can see how they are an act of creation based on other web technologies. What is more, they give us scope to all kinds of activities, thinking processes and texts in which knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation are present as stated below:
