New OU Course cuts through tech hype

The OU have started a new postgraduate course entitled “Practice-based research in educational technology” to help educational professionals make better use of ICT within their work.

The OU have stated:
“Podcasts, interactive whiteboards, Second Life and mobile devices are amongst the new and emerging technologies which can be used for educational purposes. But what evidence is there that they work and what is the best way to use them? The new course helps people to evaluate the latest research into technology enhanced learning. It also draws attention to new methods of data collection and analysis, which can then be used to study practical innovations.”

Registration is now open and the course begins in February 2009 for 20 weeks part-time.
