This is a new experience for me too! I am really interested in exploring how technology can assist in building learning communities of various types. I am currently co-authoring an e-learning module on leading and managing at a distance for the Scottish NHS, so experimenting with this sort of technology is very relevant to me.
I am very new to De Montfort and though I have taught on University courses before as an associate lecturer, I have had no formal education in teaching and learning at this level.
I mostly teach post graduates and the more mature students are often quite scared of technology, so I'd be interetsed to see how easy it is too engage them in media like this.
I loved the first video, by the way - it demonstrated how quickly and effectively information can be conveyed using this sort of medium - I would have switched off if it had been a text based article...... instead I was inspired. Just as an a experiment, I am going to add some stuff to this blog - a link, an image perhaps....
OK that went well. In the middle of doing this, I navigated away in error and the blog was automatically saved as adraft. After a few minutes' exploration, I got it back! Hoorah!
OK - to finish, here's a link to my current favourite website:See you all next week.
