So I’ve joined a MOOC #h817open

I’ve signed up for the Open Education MOOC which is part of an OU postgrad course. The MOOC is embedded in H817 but this bit is open to the world. I’ve never MOOC’d before so this is all new but as soon as I opened the forum I saw a friendly name (a lovely lady who I often meet in pub car parks or Halfords) so it feels a little less daunting already. The MOOC starts on the 16th, for details of what it’s about you might start at Martin’s blog which has links including the place to register and get involved

If time and inclination allow I’ll blog about the MOOC here.
