Exploring English – Free MOOC

Futurelearn is offering a free MOOC (massive open online course)  from British Council (“UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities”) for people interested in learning more about the  British culture and improving their English language skills. The date hasn’t been announced yet, but I will inform you through my blog or you can register in Futurelearn and register you interest so they can  send you an email when the course opens.

This course is suggested for people with an intermediate or higher level of English. You will be able to watch videos and download them. Moreover, you will find quizzes and discussions to evaluate your understanding. The course also involves writing about your feelings and experiences about each week’s topic. However, it’s up to you to participate actively or to take the course and just watch and read other people’s comments.

The course lasts 6 weeks and it takes about 2 hours per week to cover each week’s tasks. You can get a cerftificate from Futuelearn at the end of the course or buy a Statement of Participation.

Don’t miss the chance to learn more!

MOOC: massive open online course

To my mind, we should never stop learning. Setting our eyes on being life-long learners can keep us motivated even though we can reach frustration at times, but that’s the whole point of it – tackling challenges and growing.

Thanks to a previous MOOC at Canvas Network I resolved I would get more involved with technology and one of the steps was starting my own blog. It was an enriching experience and this one thing has lead to others. I still don’t feel as a digital native, but I am definitely not a lost ball in the high weeds.

However, this time I might be a not so active participant due to all the work load of the month. I’ll still give it a go and get some enrichement. What about you?

Here is the course description:

Introduction to Learning Technologies
Ends March 23, 2015, 69 Days Remaining

This short course will provide an introduction to how learning technologies may support student collaboration, reflection, creation, sharing, and other key elements of learning. It will provide an opportunity for you to consider how learning technologies support your courses as well as your own professional development and research.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Utilize learning technologies in your teaching and for your professional development
  • Evaluate various learning technologies in relation to their potential contribution to student learning
  • Create and publish digital learning resources for use in teaching
