The course site – you are here! 

This is where you find all information about the course: how to participate, course overview, course design, learning activities, community, tools, background etc. Each week we publish information and instructions for the latest topic. You can also check the ONL221 course overview here on the course site.

The communities

The main community
One of the central parts of this course homepage is the ONL community space. It is set up for all participants to join and will be used for presentation, discussion and sharing. You need register an account to join the community. This community is an open space for discussion, sharing resources, asking questions and being social. The result of each topic’s group work should be published here which enables everyone to see what you have done.


Your PBL-group
Each PBL group will have its own PBL group space within the ONL community space. This is where the group work takes place and where you will discuss and work on the topics. At the start of the course, you will automatically be assigned to your PBL group and get access to your PBL group space. For questions, contact any of the course team.
