Online learning is likely to be important for you in the future, either at university or in the workplace. Learning online is different to learning in the classroom as it requires different skills.

This course is part of the Going to University collection which has been specifically designed for schools and colleges. The course can be used as a teachers’ classroom enrichment resource or can be studied independently by students.

Perce-neige completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
I learnt nothing new, except the way the University of Leeds use technology and the social media to teach in its classroom, that's interesting, but for someone that is not interested to study at this place, this course is not so useful. The second part is a demo how to use some collaborative tools, like Gdocs or Padlet.
