"Do you have an idea of how to use technology to improve education? There are a multitude of possibilities, but developing that idea into a real product/programme that can be implemented with real students and teachers is not simple. Merging education with technology is a complex undertaking since it requires a strong knowledge of both fields, blending theoretical knowledge with technical practicalities.
"edX is offering a MOOC starting on 8 October 2014 called Design and Development of Educational Technology for anyone who wants to get a deeper understanding of this field. It is a practical course using project-based methods and culminating in a presentation of your new edtech product.
This course is part of a series of MOOCs on edX on the theme of Education Technology. The other courses in the series are:
- - Introduction to Game Design and Development (October 2014)
- - Computer Games and Simulations for Investigation and Education (Q2 2015)
- - Implementation and Evaluation of Educational Technology (Q3 2015)
