Welcome to Topic 4 – Flexible and mobile learning

Last week was all about collaboration and communities and we were happy to see so much discussion and activity in the main forum as well as in the groups! Collaboration can be visualized in many forms, padlets for one. Many of you were able to attend the webinar with Steve Wheeler on Tuesday evening, we hope you found it interesting and enjoyed it! Those of you who couldn’t attend have the option to watch the recording and download the presentation on the Overview and Schedule page. We were also able to get a short introduction to Twitter through Alastair’s short video, and if you have missed that it may be a good idea to watch now (see tutorials on the Tools for ONL page).

Today, another interesting topic of the ONL course starts: Flexible and mobile learning (see topic 4). This will give you ample opportunity to reflect on what flexible and mobile means to you and consider the pros and cons of flexibility and mobility in the context of learning and teaching. This week there are again two scenarios to choose between, one with focus on mobile learning and the other one problematising the interplay between collaborative and flexible learning.

For this week’s webinar, we have invited Jonas Månsson to give a presentation about Creative and innovative digital pedagogical learning and teaching methods. This will take place tomorrow, Wednesday May 13th, at 3-4 pm (15:00-16:00) CET (go to event page from Overview and schedule page).

See you all online.
