I'm an educational technologist at City University London and this is my second MOOC. I heard about the course on Twitter and there seemed to be a real buzz around it, plus the topic of learning design is something I've dabbled in recently, so it seemed like good timing to get involved in this course and meet some like-minded people.
My main (work) research interests right now are in learning spaces, lecture capture, electronic feedback and constructively aligned assessment. At work I'm particularly interested in engaging academic staff in the use of multimedia e.g. video, podcasting.
What I really want to get out of the OLDS MOOC is the experience of taking part in a collaborative, constructivist MOOC. I'm here to learn, but it's the format and setup of the course that really attracted me.
See you out there!
