Wealth distribution in Pakistan is highly uneven, with the top 10% of the population earning 27.6% and the bottom 10% earning only 4.1% of the income. According to the United Nations Human Development Report, Pakistan's human development indicators, especially those for women, fall significantly below those of countries with comparable levels of per-capita income. Pakistan also has a higher infant mortality rate (88 per 1000) than the South Asian average (83 per 1000).

In 2015, 21st century, we at Pakistan are desperately looking for BASIC needs of life such as Electricity, Gas, Water, Fuel, Smooth Roads, and Health, and many more. This is insane. How can one think of a life without these things? Are we some very poor African country or an atomic power? If our Govt. is not using these basic necessities of life, then its fine. Why the difference? Please FITE against this injustice. We cant see Pakistan decaying.

Thanks for signing up to E-learning and Digital Cultures (otherwise known as EDCMOOC). We’re really excited about starting the course on November 3rd 2014, and wanted to give you an early welcome. 

The Coursera site will open on the 3rd, and that will be the start of week 1. In the meantime, we’d like to encourage you all to try out the social media services we’re planning to use during the course. Opening up some of our scholarly activities to the wider public web is an important part of EDCMOOC, and we hope that you’ll join us in signing up to and using these free services. 

The microblogging service Twitter is a great way to communicate and share resources, and we’re hoping to use it throughout the course for general chat, as well as specific tasks. You can start now with the hashtag #edcmooc. Sign up for a free account here: http://twitter.com. You’ll notice that there is a lot of activity there already – that’s because people are still using it from the last two sessions of the MOOC. Feel free to dive in and join the conversation. 

An important focus on E-Learning and Digital Cultures will be the role of visual and digital media for academic writing and communication. You’ll be tasked with some exciting activities, both interpreting and creating images, and we’re planning to use the free photo sharing service Flickr. Sign up for a Flickr account here: http://www.flickr.com

Writing your own blog during the course is also highly recommended. If you don’t have a blog already, you could try the free services Wordpress (http://wordpress.com) or Blogger (http://www.blogger.com). We think your own reflections on the course themes will be a crucial part of the course, and we will integrate them as much as possible. Check out the EDCMOOC News (http://edcmooc.education.ed.ac.uk/wp/), featuring posts from previous participants. We’ll be supplying instructions about how to add your own blog soon! 

If you’ve not done so already, we hope you’ll sign up to these services, start your blog, and introduce yourself on twitter before we begin formally in November. Using the course hashtag with your social media activity will allow everyone participating to find your contributions easily, so please add #edcmooc to your blogs, images and communications. We’ll be in touch again soon with more details about the course content. 

Looking forward to seeing you online soon! 

All the best, 
The EDCMOOC team
