12 Apps of Christmas

Ho, Ho, Hum!

A #MOOC for #Mlearning from Regents College.  I’ve been playing with Socrative in my first year criminal law class this current session, so I was inspired and then self-cajoled into joining this short-life MOOC by the following email:

“Overwhelmed by the range of apps for teaching and learning to be found online? This year, the helpful elves of Regent’s University London are coming to your rescue, with 12 Apps of Christmas!

12 Apps of Christmas is a fun, free, and simple online course  and tailored to the needs of staff here at RUL but is open to all.

Running every weekday from Thursday 4th to Friday 19th December, 12 Apps of Christmas is like an advent calendar of learning!

Each day we will present a different educational app, explain how it can benefit you, and show you how to download it. There will be a short and fun task (no more than ten minutes) to get you using each app, with a chance to learn about it in more depth in your own time and at your own pace.”

In sum, 10 minutes for 12 days is only two hours of my life.  I might even get back on the Twitter bandwagon with the hashtag #RUL12AoC if anything catches my interest.  The site doesn’t say what 12 will be showcased – hoping some might be useful.
