This module is highly relevant if you work in, or wish to move into, e-learning within higher education, further education, non-formal education or training. It is a core component of our MA in Online and Distance Education (F10), which is made up of separate modules.
When you have successfully completed H880 you will have developed your ability to act as an effective professional within the broad field of technology-enhanced teaching and training.
The module is aligned with the Professional Standards Framework developed by the UK’s Higher Education Academy (HEA), a framework used for benchmarking success within higher education teaching and support. Students working towards HEA Fellowship will be able to use their work on the module to help them build a fellowship case.
Some of our masters students are sponsored by their employers, and we expect this to be the case on this module. Employers have demonstrated that they value the vocational relevance of the programme and the professional benefits that it brings to their staff.

A team of leading-edge researchers and educators who work on Learning, Teaching and Innovation at the OU have developed the materials for this module. All these materials are online, and you will explore them individually and in small online groups using text-based discussion forums and online room sessions, guided and supported by your tutor. You are also welcome to lead your own online discussions and to use a range of online tools, including those provided by the OU. You will be supported in individual study, in working together, and in seeking out new networks and sources of information on the Internet – from online journals to social media, and from learning at scale to open educational resources.
