The 12 apps of Christmas! a mini MOOC challenge!

Aplogies for cross posting

Have you ever thought about taking part in a MOOC but were worried it would take too much of your time?


Are you interested in exploring which free mobile apps could help you in your teaching or supporting your students?


Would you like to take part in a fun, free, practical online course this December?


Then the 12 apps of Christmas could be for you.


Last year, hundreds of educators and librarians around the world took part in a new open course hosted by Regent’s University London – the 12 Apps of Christmas.  In just a few minutes a day, they learned about and tried out a range of free mobile apps with potential classroom use, built a community of practice, and had 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 – better than ever – from 1st to 16th December this year, we 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, and a chance to be part of a friendly, enquiring community of educators worldwide.

And for those of you who took part last year – yes, we’re afraid the Christmas cracker jokes will be back…
