Diana and Ed Take a Trip Down Memory Lane at The OU

Last Friday Ed and I paid a visit to the OU in Milton Keynes.  As former students neither of us had ever been on the OU campus. Our trip brought back memories of parcels of books, videos and audio tapes regularly being hauled up the garden path by the postman. But of course the OU moved into the digital world some time ago.Why did we go?

The OU is one of the leading developers of online educational resources and we wanted to explore opportunities to learn and share as we strive to develop Workshed. We were treated to a taster of the online resources now available to OU students – and many for free http://www.open.edu/openlearn/?ONBAN=OS001&MEDIA=openlearn Worth checking out some of those resources.
