Activity 1: Getting to know the open environment
Timing: 4 hours
Familiarise yourself with the open environment we are using for this open course by doing the following:
- Look at the content of other units in the OpenLearn environment to get a feel for the navigation and the overall environment. You can explore any topic from the .
- If you have not already done so, set up a blog, as mentioned above.
- Register your blog with the course aggregator.
- Post an introductory post to your blog, in which you explain why you’re studying this course and what your background is. Remember to tag it with #h817open (an explanation about tags can be found on ). The blog aggregator is not an OU-supported system, so it may take a day for your post to appear – please be patient. In the course we will also be using forums within the OpenLearn environment, so if you prefer you can use these instead of a blog.
