Abstract: Last year I taught two modules as part of an MA programme in technology enhanced education. My pedagogical approach led students from personal experiences to abstract ideas through on-line and face-to-face discussions. In search for a technological platform which would support such an approach, I decided to try Google Apps - combining a course web site with a discussion list and shared documents. The rationale for this choice was the flexibility which was afforded by the platform, allowing me to shape it to my needs. Using this platform, I was able to provide my students with an intense and rewarding learning experience.
In this talk, I will share some experiences from this experiment and the insights and questions that they raise. We will also have room to discuss how tutors can adopt and transfer some of the elements to their own courses.
