You will also participate in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) during this module. It is written by your module tutors from the University of Southampton and hosted on the FutureLearn platform. It is called ‘Learning in the Network Age’ and opens on the 19th Feb 2018 and will provide you with a chance to interact with learners from across the world.

You will be studying this module through a combination of self-study and online/offline interactions with your tutor and fellow students. Your skills will be developed through curating, sharing and discussing content and reflecting on your learning.

The materials provided by the tutors simply introduce the challenges posed by each topic – the real learning occurs through reading, discussing and reflecting on the contributions of your colleagues to each topic.

It is important to emphasise that the focus is on sharing, contributing, discussing and reflecting.

Unlike traditional classrooms, in online classes most of the learning will occur as a result of interacting with your classmates and your knowledge is constructed and expanded as a result of your interactions with your peers, the materials and the tutors. The more you put in the more you will get out!
