Work has submerged my world

29 Sep

I’ve not been posting much this summer as I’ve been so busy with my day job (which currently feels like a day and night job). It’s just as well that I really love what I do, and get to work with some amazing people, otherwise I could really start to resent it.

Anyway, it’s now just one week until my latest project goes live. I’ve been working with an amazing team of people from the University of Southampton’s Centre for Maritime Archaeology to create a MOOC (Massive Online Open Course) called Shipwrecks and Submerged Worlds. The course will start on October 6th, but it’s possible to sign up now and the accompanying blog is also available.

    OMG! I LOVE IT! šŸ™‚ Are you the tech person, or one of the researchers? SO COOL!

        Thank you, Sandra šŸ™‚ I’ve been involved in a variety of aspects, but mainly learning design, editing and tech. I seem to be in an underwater phase at the moment – the last MOOC I supported was on ‘Exploring our Oceans’ (so, mainly oceanography) – but this one is much more familiar territory as I’m happiest with humanities! The second week of the course covers seafaring from 800000BP to 1900AD – I find the more recent parts most fascinating. There some great medieval info and I love the Age of Sail.

        We’ve got a really international team with support coming from PhD students from Canada, USA, Belgium, Austria, Lebanon and England and we’re hoping to reach an international audience šŸ™‚
