End of the Line? or A New Start

Howdy, ONL231 enthusiasts! May I start with how much fun each part of this course was?

Daring to be open: the best of the ONL

I started this week with a discussion in my group about the future of education. How would education look like in 10-20 years? I was excited to listen to my group since they are more involved in innovation and technology than me. We talk about a dream of open and accessible education where you could […]
