EEL503 Dimensions of Online and Open (4)

Courses which are both open and online offer learners across the globe unprecedented access to education. Through sophisticated technologies and purposefully designed online approaches, open online courses have the potential to attract large-scale participation and global interest.

In this subject students will engage with the latest educational teaching developments in online and open education. In a series of small assessments students will develop specific skills for online teaching including online moderation and online activity design. They will also conduct small-scale investigations into open educational resources (OERs), contribute to the development of OERs, and use case studies to personalise their learning and situate the subject content in the context of their own life and work.
