Bringing together campus-based students and MOOC learners

From 16.15 to 16.45 on 5th May 2016 we will be livestreaming an event taking place on campus for the benefit of MOOC learners.

A panel of MOOC Educators and Facilitators, and a group of students from the Online Social Networks module (UOSM2012) will be discussing the key issues arise from discussions within the course about “the power of social media”. Useful exam revision!

We will also be demonstrating the power of the social media backchannel in supporting a live event. A group of our Student Digital Champions will be:

  • tweeting the key points covered in the discussions
  • taking and responding to questions from virtual MOOC guests
  • posting photos and short video interviews with presenters and audience
  • summarising the discussions afterwards via blogposts and Storify

Please make sure you use the course hashtag #FLsocialmedia and/or the specific event hashtag #realtimeSoton if posting a question.

A recording of the event will be posted on our Youtube channel after the event if you are not able to join in live.
