E-Learning Professional. It's all about Moodle and MOOCs at the moment.

    Teaching large groups – podcasts
    Not sure about use of Twitter with students; last I read, they (ie young people) don't use it.
    Employability – Specific study skills eg report writing
    Maybe a General Learning Technologies heading including use of resources like Edina and BoB



  2. I seem to have forgotten to put podcasts underneath the large groups header! I think I was somewhat preoccupied with the use of audio for delivering generic feedback to a group – and how that strikes me as somewhat asymmetrical, given that fb is supposed to be a 2-way street.

    Twitter is a funny one – low impact on us and not within our realm but there are loads of case studies out there on its successful use. It's also more accessible than Moodle when using mobile technology.



  3. 'fraid I'm with Roger on students not using Twitter (Facebook superdominant SNS with mobile interface).

    See for full sad story …
