Opening of new courses
No, it is not the official start of both courses, that will be the 5 February 2011.
My new courses are
- H809 Practice-based research in educational technology
- H807 Innovations in elearning
But it is a beginning and I already started downloading documents, the calendar, checked when the assessments and the ECA/EMAs will be due. There is a little inconsistency between the dates they display in H809, but I think they will sort that out. One good news is that the cut-off date for the EMAs is not the same. There is almost a week difference, thus less pressure as with my previous finished courses, oh I forgot, they call it presentation now. However, the bad news is that both courses require each three tutor-marked-assessments (TMAs).
The forums are not open yet, which is good at one side, because at the time the course officially starts the forum is not overcrowed and does not discourage those who signed in late, but on the other side I hope to find out if some of my colleagues from previous courses will be in my tutor group, too. Well, I guess I have to be a little bit patient.
😦 Waiting is not my strongest trait.
