EDC feedback and marks now out

Feedback and mark sheets have been uploaded into WebCT – well done everyone!
We’ll make a page of ‘All assignments’ in the next few weeks – please just let us know if you would rather yours wasn’t on there.

Merry Christmas EDC!

We couldn’t possibly summarise and wind up EDC in one post, so we  made a video. All images courtesy of the blogs.
Thanks everyone for a brilliant semester, best of luck with the assignments, and the best of merry christmasses!

if you experience any lifestream glitches…

Just a note that a few people are experiencing some last-minute lifestream glitches with various feeds.

The micro-ethnographies you have created show a tremendous amount of effort, skill, and creative and critical thinking – we are extremely impressed. We suggest spending a few more days commenting on ones you may not have had a chance to see or discuss yet (Sian [...]

Thursday chat cancelled

The daytime slot isn’t proving too popular, so we thought we’d just cancel the thursday morning chat and stick to the one this evening.
