Elearn - a new, free online magazine from Blackboard

Blackboard has launched a free online magazine called Elearn, which they describe as follows:

For Educators, by Educators - Functioning as a cooperative, E-Learn works with contributors to create and share meaningful dialogue, and action, around current topics in education. Topics and trends are determined by the community. E-Learn is built to be a voice for the frontline of education and technology — what’s current, what’s challenging, what’s working?

Please have a look, and consider contributing your own case studies of learning and teaching to this international platform. ...

Learning Space Tweet walk (Twalk) 31 May

Wednesday 31st May 2017 1:00-2:00pm

Twitter logoThe E-Learning Group at AU has organised a short tweet-walk to coincide with an event on Digital Placemaking held at Edge Hill University on 31st May by the UK Media-Enhanced Learning Special Interest Group (MELSIG) http://melsig.shu.ac.uk/?page_id=1091. The aim of the walk is to experience different learning spaces and share our responses via Twitter. The walk will last one hour.

The Twalk will happen at Aber, Edge Hill, and other universities all at the same time, so that we can walk, talk and post together using these hashtags to respond to set questions at each station (Viewpoint) in the walk: #SIGCLANS #MELSIG

At each Viewpoint, we will discuss a new topic inspired by the location. Participants can chat, snap photos if desired, and tweet. Carry on discussing the topic as we walk in pairs or small groups to the next Viewpoint.

Wherever you are, Twalk! – Snap! Chat! Tweet and Walk!
