For Scandinavians, summer is very special due to the very uneven distribution of daylight and temperature during the four seasons. This time of year, the northernmost parts of Sweden, Norway and Finland have midnight sun – and during winter there will be a period when the sun never manages to rise above the horizon! With a bit more than two weeks to go before summer solstice, Denmark and the southernmost part of Sweden have long days (in Lund today the sun rose at 4:25 am and will set at 9:48 pm) whereas in the winter the days are but a few hours long. We’ve had a few days of summer here with temperatures above 25°C (and all of us now wonder if that was the summer this year).
The course team would like to thank you all for the energy you have put into the course during these months, for the generosity in sharing, the jokes, the laughs and the kindness displayed! We know this course has been basically another set of ‘to-dos’ on everyone’s list – so it’s about time you all get a breather after a job well done – if you take a minute or two to consider where you were regarding the level of digital literacy when the course started in February, and where you are today, you will undoubtedly see that you have made considerable progress!
A new iteration of the course, ONL162, will launch in September (see here). Tell your friends and colleagues (or go to this page and sign up at once)!
Wish you all a really great summer!
The course team
