Learning Technologies 2019

Technology Enhanced Learning, What I do

I may actually get to Learning Technologies 2019 this year. Usually I plan to go and then get sucked into to some project-related madness at the last minute, but this year… oh yes.

One of the reasons is that I’ve decided to go back to what my boss calls “grad school” – which always sounds odd when it’s referring to the Open University. From February 4th I’ll be studying for a Post-Graduate Certificate in Technology Enhanced Learning. I’ll be building a MOOC, investigating citizen science, looking at different ways to learn online or using technology in some way and all kinds of magical stuff.

I have a blog space at the university, but I think I’ll run my notes etc on this blog, just to keep everything in one place.

Because nothing says ‘learning technology’ like a pair of specs and a pen, eh folks?

It’s been a while. But I thought I had better update the portfolio with a few of the exciting things I’ve been working on for the past few years. I’ve branched into development, creating animated interactive HTML5 learning for our new internal LMS, hosted on Docebo.

I’m quite impressed by Docebo’s flexibility and power. It’s particularly good for curating blended learning projects, combining documents, HTML5 modules, Youtube videos and even Webex videos into a single course. I’m still exploring everything it can do, but in the right hands we could deliver some seriously cool learning and use the extensive reporting and data to monitor what works and what doesn’t work.

Take a look at the portfolio to see what I’ve been up to.
