Week 1: Getting started

Welcome to the course. This week we will be getting you started, introducing you to some of the technologies that we are going to be using on the course and thinking about our online personas. At 10.00 GMT on Thursday 22nd January we will be meeting up for our first syncronous activity.

Before Thursday

Familiarise yourself with the Exploring Online Research Methods Website.  You may also want to start looking at some of the items on the reading list

Thursday's activity

We will be using a technology called Connect to hold real-time discussions as part of this course. This technology is very straight-forward to use and you shouldn't need any training to get started on it.

  • E-tivity - the synchronous discussion will begin at 10.00 on Thursday 22nd January and we would advise you to enter the meeting room a few minutes before then.
  • Find out more about Connect.

Any problems: Can't get on? Not sure what is supposed to be happening? etc. Give us a ring on 07753814020 and we will do what we can to help.
