Time for study

It’s been a while since I did any formal study, and given that there is not even a snowball’s chance in hell of getting any funding from my employer to undertake any kind of qualification, I decided to take matters into my own hands and did a bit of searching…

Eventually, and entirely by chance, I came across a Digital Storytelling course, open to anyone and studied online. The course is facilitated by Jim Groom, Instructional Technology Specialist and adjunct professor at the University of Mary Washington, who describes the course as a MOOC (Massively Open Online Course).

Taking place over about 15 weeks (I think) and beginning on January 10th, the course looks to cover a number of areas in which I have some experience, but hope to improve. The course looks like it should also run in parallel to some of the units I’ll be delivering this forthcoming semester, so hopefully there may be some crossover between the course and my day job.

This will not be my first experience of undertaking an online course, but I think it will differ significantly from the single multimedia module I did online with Napier University ten years ago. So I expect this to be a new and interesting experience and hopefully I’ll make it through to tell my story.
