And we’re off! Welcome to Education and Digital Cultures 2017, the course site is now open. We hope the pre-course reading has been useful, and that you’re up and running with your blog and lifestream.
Use the menu at the top of the site to navigate the course sections and materials, and the menu on the right of the site to view recent posts and comments, as well as link to everyone’s blog. Start with Block 1: Cyberculture, get familiar with the readings, and ease yourself into the course with our film festival. On Tuesday (at 8pm) we’ll hold our first Togethertube tutorial, where we can watch and discuss the films as a group. Creative interpretations welcome!
On Monday you’ll hear from your tutor, with some more details about your blog. Until then, keep customising (note that there should be some other WordPress themes now available), as well as adding lifestream feeds for the resources you’re exploring on the web.
The course starts on January 16th 2017, but take a look before then at the ‘Before semester starts‘ page to see what you need to do to get set up (in particular, setting up Twitter, G+, Togethertube, and your lifestream-blog). Please also get the dates for the real-time tutorials into your diary.
You will receive an email with detail of how to log in to your blog space for this course – please let your tutor know if you don’t have it by 10th January.
Our hashtag is #mscedc so please get tweeting any time in the run up to next semester – looking forward to seeing you online!
