This OERu course is a micro Open Online Course (mOOC) where you will create your own personal learning environment (PLE).
Participation in this course requires learners to establish their own PLE incorporating a number of web-based tools, for example, microblogs and blogs. You will use your PLE to document your learning and to connect with other learners taking this course.
This course also utilises a number of features associated with Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), so if you are new to this kind of learning, you should spend a little time setting familiarising yourself with the course environment and learning approach.
This orientation provides a brief overview of PLEs and suggested learning approaches for open online courses. There are also detailed tutorials in the support section should you need step-by-step support in setting up your PLE.
