Week 8: LMS – “to be or not to be” (the continuous discussion …)

A good week! because I could see preliminary reinforced my intuitive arguments about the role of the LMS. This post demanded a great effort to express my ideas.

A post with which I am not satisfied. Probably because the uninspiring reading material.

Week 21: Introduction to Online Education Theory

Another week with which I am happy because it allowed me expand on an interesting theoretical discussion.

Week 22: Personal Learning Networks

As I wrote in this post, one of the things that I find particularly interesting is to collect ideas and inspiration from outstanding lecturers, teachers and writers.

Week 23: Presentation

This is my presentation on Week 12: Online Resources.

A summary of my conclusions

  • Although 4-5 hours a week seems reasonable, some weeks I spent a few more hours. In the beginning I didn’t realize how much more time I’d expend in my researches.
  • Although my comments on the blogs of my colleagues often was not what I had wanted, I have improved my writing and I must admit it is very encouraging to receive comments!
  • This program gave me the opportunity to explore different theories, inspiring ideas and experiences.
  • In short, the program has exceeded my expectations.
