Others may wish to follow where others have gone before – clicking through this selection is a wonderful introduction for the preprimed though not digital expert. How to turn a digital visitor into a digital resident? Here’s how.


This week we were asked to devise an outline for a 5 week course. Once the outline was completed we had to look at a selection of OERs to see if any of the available resources could be used as course content. The purpose of the task was to see if a course could be created using existing OERs, and if the resources are already out there, how useful they are. We were asked to rate the resources (G) good, (M) medium and (B) bad.

I decided to design a course on using digital skills in the classroom aimed at secondary (high) school teachers, and here are the results of my evaluation.

1. Week 1 – Introduction to using Digital Skills in a Secondary School Classroom
