On Tuesday (10th September, 2013) I’ll be giving a short presentation at altc2013 on using WordPress as a course platform for ocTEL. I had planned to write more about the actual presentation but instead got lost in how to box an open course.

ALT-S SIG Glasgow Caledonian University – 20th June 2013

A belated blog about the ALT-S SIG Glasgow Caledonian University on 20th June 2013.

This is the first meeting, apart from at ALT-C that I have attended and the first time that I’ve been to GCU.  It was very interesting and useful and I met and talked to quite a few people that I’ve not met before.  The attendees were mostly Learning Technologists.
There was a mixture of presentations and talks and then group discussions with feedback.
The presentations were the following which were all very interesting and useful.

Dr Christine Sinclair, University of Edinburgh: The Coursera Experience

Grainne Hamilton, Jisc RSC Scotland: Open Badges

Martin Hawksey, Cetis: ALT’s ocTEL MOOC experience: Designing the platform

As well as tweeting from the event, I did take some brief notes……
