Learning Spaces: A Bibliography

In 2011, I had just successfully completed my MSc in e-Learning (now MSc in Digital Education) with the University of Edinburgh.

Assessing the #edcmooc digital artefact

Hmmm, I still find myself not quite walking away from my phenomenal #edcmooc experience – though this has not been the experience for everyone who have not liked the laissez-faire approach of this course (Young, 2013).

Limbering up for the #edcmooc 2013 sweepstake

One of the things that I have found to be quite remarkable since signing up for “E-learning and Digital Cultures” Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) with the University of Edinburgh and Coursera is the sheer volume of online pre-course activity that has been generated by the EDC MOOC students – a kind of “limbering up” […]

This blog was created as part of my MSc in e-Learning studies with the University of Edinburgh. First off, the blog was designed to help the student to become more critical […]
