This year the eBusiness students at Harper Adams will have to blog about the topics we cover in class, so expect lots of blogs around the topics of MOOCs, the use of ePortfolios for assessment, gaining a Microsoft Office Qualification and other exciting tech-topics.
As usual some of the tech-natives in class are comfortable with the concepts and the process already, whilst some are reticent and treading slowly. MOOCs are today’s focus – some of the students have chosen to study topics which will complement the learning from the module, whilst others have opted for content that will interest them We have decided to limit MOOC length to between four and six weeks because we are essentially reflecting upon whether MOOCs are valuable and useful for HE students rather than analyzing content.
I love to sit in the corner of the room on the instructor PC listening as they guide each other through the technical hurdles and then settle down to listen and learn “Urban mining for a circular economy is my favourite so far… #random
