Truly taking the MOOC

uofs-logoMoments after registering for the University of Saskatchewan’s new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) – or, as they term it, a TOOC (Truly Open Online Course) – I have that sense of forboding that only a New Year’s resolution can bring. But, by now blogging about it, I may not be able to get out of it that easily, hence this post!

Entitled Introduction to Learning Technologies, and with a start date in the week beginning 20 January 2014, as well as a completion date of 15 April 2014, I already have serious trepidations about signing up to do this. Thus, is there anyone out there, particularly in the Loughborough Unviersity Learning and Teaching Community, who might want to join me on this journey? If so, drop me an email at and I won’t feel that I’m very much on my own! Further information on this MOOC – sorry, TOOC – is available at
