Just a voice of peace, sent on yet another violent day.
While typing ferociously to get the phd draft for my promoters done by the end of this week, many violent things have happened in a short period of time (Brussels airport blown up, Orlando night-club shooting, brexit and its ...

for those wanting a quick update on funding opportunities: the OU just released two recordings related to bidding for funding (in UK and EU). The seminars provide background information on who can look for funding and why it is worth considering. http://ignatiawebs.blogspot.co.uk/2016/06/free-bidding-for-funding-seminars-for.html

3 quick presentations by CALRG presenters on online assessment, better understanding of webconference based language learning, and the search for a personalised learning assessment tool.

Latest news from FutureLearn, they now have 13 MOOCs ready that allow students to obtain academic credit. Nice alternative or addition to the Global Freshman Academy from EdX (https://www.edx.org/gfa). The paradigm shift in higher ed moves forward yet another step. Online learning is here to stay.
FutureLearn's new programs will enable you to earn academic credit, professional accreditation and other awards online. This post explains how they work.

interesting question from +Rebecca J. Hogue  Do we need a blogger code for researchers? So researchers know what the blogger allows academics to do with their blog-data. How could Rebecca go about making that happen? I have a CC license on my blog, but if my posts would be used in research, I would like the researchers to drop me a line as to inform me about their study.
 
Would love some feedback on this idea ...
I’m thinking of calling out to the blogging community (more specifically to the cancer blogging community – but I’m sure this extends to other blogospheres), in trying to create s…

Inspiring mobile learning related conference proceedings. From the first 5 papers I have read (so still have a lot to go) I really loved Helen Crompton'​'s paper on building a mobile learning framework to integrate mLearning into learning environments based on learning theories and approaches, as well as on micro/meso/macro levels in society... will go on reading...
This is a really wonderful set of papers that encompass the latest mobile learning realities and implementations. The proceedings were disseminated before the actual IMLF2016 conference start in Bangkok, providing a nice bit ...

This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone with a clear MOOC idea, but still wondering which platform to use. The EMMA platform supports multiple languages, which includes an automated translation of transcripts of your MOOC ...

Story
Tagline
passionate about technology enhanced learning. Started out with eLearning, than going into mLearning and now realizing that ubiquitous learning ... will bring all differentiated technology enhanced learning back to the term learning. I currently work at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Belgium and I am starting my exploratory thesis work for a M. Ed, in Distance Education at Athabasca University in Canada. My main interests are innovative learning methods (MOOC's, socio-constructivist learning), lifelong learning, social media for learning, network for knowledge... well anything that involves learning and connecting to improve knowledge (while using technology).
Introduction
My main interest is learning through and with technologies, focusing on the learning affordances of these technologies.
