12 apps of Christmas

Last December, hundreds of academics, learning technologists and librarians around the world took part in a new free open course hosted by Regent’s University, London – The 12 Apps of Christmas.  I was among them. In just a few minutes a day, we tried out a range of free mobile apps with potential educational use and built a community of practice, whilst having fun doing so!

The course was a success, winning the Credo Digital Information Literacy Award and inspiring people to run versions at other institutions.

Now, the original is back and is, reputedly, better than ever! From 1-16 December 2015, Regents will be presenting Christmas 2.0!

The 12 Apps of Christmas 2015 will offer a completely new range of carefully selected apps, while keeping to the same simple, entertaining formula which made it so successful last year. Expect guest posts, engaging hands-on activities, a chance to be part of a friendly, enquiring community of educators worldwide, and the obligatory Christmas cracker jokes!

Wishing you an early ‘appy’ Christmas!
