Online Education

Online learning has never been easier or more accessible.  It can be undertaken these days on a computer, tablet or mobile phone and therefore can also be accessed even on the move!  It’s also great fun to create with a vast array of software to enable the creator build it.  Now I’m no e-learning technologist so I’m just experimenting.  I’ve created a number of mini online learning experiences and as a result of my ‘personal learning curve’ they don’t currently have a consistency about them – but bear with me on this journey.  I hope each one taken at face value could be a useful learning experience for you!

Each one below has a short description.  Click on the image for access.
