New Year and a new course on line : this time it is about BLENDED LEARNING. I have just started the course, it is a MOOC and Professor BERNARD BULL is running it. It is interesting to see how education is being taught, discussed and presented in the MOOCs on line. So far I have followed three courses and they have all dealt with education and its future, and the term BLENDED LEARNING has been used by all Professors, teachers and people who were discussing this issue.
You can reach the new MOOC by using this link:
I have watched and listened to the videos of the first module.
I found the defintions the Professor used for BLENDED LEARNING were interesting and in some cases new for me. I have also searched the web and found a lot of information, as a teacher of English I feel that BLENDED LEARNING offers many interesting advantages and I am going to discuss and learn more about them. I realize that there will be difficulties but every teacher should be aware of it.
I have also watched this interesting webminar in German: it is worth seeing!
