Open Education – Activity 1

I work in eLearning at a university and MOOCs are flavour of the month at the moment, so this seemed like a good opportunity to do a little semi-formal studying on the subject and experience a MOOC at the same time.

I have a bit of history in this area. I’ve been working in eLearning for about ten years now and completed the MA in Online and Distance Education with the OU about three years ago – H817 Open Education was not an option at the time so, again, this is an opportune moment to update my learning in a familiar environment.

I’ve also been a long-time advocate of openness, especially in education. This interest stemmed from my use and advocacy of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and the belief that the theories underpinning FOSS could be transferred to education.

That’s me in a nutshell, but I’m sure I’ll reveal more about myself in future blogs.
