I am actually doing a MOOC! What this course is about …
Teaching is increasingly using technology to improve the quality and extend the reach of learning. Examples of this can be seen in
- the growth of distance learning
- emergence of free and open access to learning materials from the Open University and MIT to Khan Academy
- learning via simulations, as for example when dentistry students practise drilling skills with ‘virtual’ teeth
- mobile and location-aware learning delivery, providing know-how at exactly the time and place it is needed
Poor use of technology is a significant waster of time and money in the public sector.
This course will help those planning and delivering teaching to make the best use of technology in their work and avoid pitfalls and hccups.
This is a Blog about my experiences doing the #ocTEL course over the next six weeks.
