I am participating in Open Networked Learning course which is offered by Karolinska Institutet, Lund University, Linnaeus University, Stockholm University, Luleå University of Technology, Linköping University (Sweden), Arcada University of Applied Sciences (Finland) and Independent Institute of Education (IIE) (South Africa) in collaboration.
This course is a gerat opportunity for us to explore digital learning environments online, extend professional networks and get engaged with the trends in online learning. The most interesting and challenging part for me in this course is actually BLOGGING. Writing and publishing plog posts is not only a way of sharing your reflections, but also trying yourself in a digital space as a blogger.
This post appears in my language school web-site where I have a small business blog mainly used for announcements and online offers. So, I am going to use this space for posting the course blog posts here on Enbiz.com.ua. A learning blog is definitely someting different from a business blog: more focus on the content and building a professional network, no worries about growing traffic and making money. For me a learning blog is more like a personal journal.
I think making a learning blog a part of this course is an excellent idea as this envolves practicing our online presence and a great way to connect with others on the course.
So, a blogger for the next two months? Yes!
