Subject: Education-Related Listservs

The Internet contains literally thousands of special interest discussion groups, each individually controlled by a program known as a listserv. Discussions are often moderated by a list owner, but this is not always the case. Most lists can be provided to the user either in a digest form or on a post-by-post basis. Any member of the list may take part in a conversation or begin a new topic. Listservs also distribute electronic journals (commonly known as e-journals or e-texts), moderated on-line magazines usually dedicated to a specific area of research. Lists and e-journals are joined by posting email to the list address and writing the following in the first line of the actual posting (without the brackets):

subscribe [name of list] [yourfirstname] [yourlastname]

Nothing else may be written within the message page. For example, if wanted to join the Education Technology list (EDTE= CH), he would send mail to and write the following within the the post:

subscribe EDTECH Charles Ansorge

The listserv program does the rest.

Presented here is a collection of education-centered discussion groups. This is by no means a comprehensive list, for two reasons. First, lists come and go, so it is virtually impossible to keep a truly up-to-date list collection, as hard as one may try. Second, because the term 'education' covers a wide variety of list types (K-12, special ed, higher ed, graduate research, etc.), a list of education lists takes on a mind of its own when one attempts to assemble every listserv associated with education. Therefore, this grouping will be related to general education, K -12 education, education technology and education reform.

Below is another resource that is definitely worth learning more about if you have an interest in receiving information regarding other lists which do not have an education or technology focus as those appearing above.

Liszt, the web's biggest directory of e-mail discussion groups (by a long shot), just went live September 29th at


Liszt features fast, searchable access to info on more than 22,000 listserv, majordomo, listproc, and independently-managed mailing lists. Liszt updates itself weekly with direct queries to hundreds of servers, so the information's always current; there's also a form where list-owners can add their own lists to the database. Liszt's also got:

* Hooks for privacy (list-owners can easily prevent their list from appearing);
* Instructive, netiquette information;
* A similar searchable database of Usenet newsgroups;
* Ability to handle unusually complex boolean searches, like
((music or lore) and folk) not "Ani D*franco"

Subscribing to listservs is not for everyone. Some of us already receive too much e-mail. Previous experience has made me understand there are very useful and valuable discussion groups from which I have been able to learn important and useful information.

Our connectivity to the Internet has been steadily improving in Teachers College. The number of faculty who continue to use a modem for accessing e-mail and the Internet is rapidly decreasing and will soon disappear for any of us wishing access from our office. We'll all be in a position to obtain information on the Internet much more readily than before.

Now if we could just know how to locate the "jewels" related to our interests. I'm afraid this will take a while.

Credit for much of the message goes to the new, powerful, and fast search engines which are becoming available on the Internet for users plus to a variety of posts I have saved in recent months related to the topic of education. I hope my colleagues will find this information to be of value.
