Just over a week ago myself and a few of my classmates from the Living and Working on the Web module took part in the Southampton 2013 Digital Literacies Conference (you can recap on the twitter feed for this event by using the appropriate hashtag which is #sotonMOOC). Attendees came from various institutions across the UK with the aim of discussing the issues surrounding learning via MOOCS (which for those of you who are unaware is nothing related to cows but however is an acronym which stands for Massive Open Online Course).
In order to give the participants a little taster of the experience of a mainly online-based course at the University of Southampton, my colleagues and I (along with the help of film and video producer Rob Porter who very kindly helped us out with the filming) put together a short descriptive video which we presented to the audience whilst they enjoyed their midday coffees and Danish pastries!
Talking about how the course focusing on digital literacy has improved our employability, helped with time management, and generally aided our learning experiences within the University, we almost unintentionally broadcast an advertisement for #UOSM2008!
