I finally put pen to paper on the first of six mini projects, exploring aspects of e-learning and started with a focus MOOCs as Open Educational Resources.
When we finished the teaching session at Huddersfield last Saturday I was feeling highly motivated and wanted to capitalise on the discussions and activities as quickly as I could. I find the flexibility of the programme to select mini projects and determine what to tackle first is quite informal and this adds to the appeal. It’s not a case of do as you like, but take the nuggets of learning and apply them where and how you like.
The webinar on Tuesday 23rd October was useful in reviewing theory and cemented reading from the course reader. It was interesting to observe as a teacher and participate as a student in the use of Adobe Connect software. The technical difficulties were instrumental in understanding mastery of the technology.
I guess that leads me to the next challenge ‘Supporting Learners in a digital age’…
