Over the summer, with support from two student interns, we have been upgrading our MA in English Language Teaching: Online programme, ready for relaunch in September 2018. The upgrade has involved a migration from a Moodle Virtual Learning Environment to Blackboard, as well as a review of the structure and clarity of all of our online resources and materials and the usability of the various course communication channels from a student experience perspective. Our students are all busy part-time online learners, and practising English Language Teachers, who are based in around 25 different countries across the world.
We will have computers set up with our new Blackboard course in Room 2129 and would be happy to demo the features of the course, and chat generally about our experiences of running a fully online programme for part-time distance learners.
This event may be of interest to you if you would like to hear more about developments to this course, are thinking about upgrading your own Blackboard course, or have an interest in the design of online learning experiences generally.
