MOOCs - lifelong learning made easy
This is my experience #scichat #edchat #STEM #FLgenesBath
MOOCs a new and cool way to add some structure to lifelong learning. The price is right, you pay only if you wish to have a certificate or gain.. This is my experience with a MOOC.

The sign said 'back at 2" How else do you kill a bit of time than to saunter along Canmore's Spring Creek boardwalk. When I'm not wandering the valleys, you can find me on Twitter

Gallipoli 100 years on
#flickr #photo #Gallipoli100  
It was a very moving experience to visit this area. Today, I view the ceremonies on TV commemorating the campaign that cost nearly 215,000 young people their lives in April 1915. You can find me on Twitter

We’re celebrating DNA Day (our favorite holiday) this Saturday! To kick things off, we took a look back at highlights in human genetics history. From the first published paper on DNA in 1953 to the first GWAS in 2005, here are some noteworthy innovations in genetics. What else should we add to the list? http://23me.co/SWpTtg #DNADay
