Social Scholar - Online learning: Developing trends

19 March 2014, 13:00 - 14:00

Speakers Abstract:

Venue: room 233 Senate House

Online Learning: Developing trends. User expectations of what learning is and how it is offered and supported are changing dramatically and rapidly. Remaining relevant is the most significant challenge for organisations working in this new world. How might we respond to these challenges.

This month, for the Social Scholar, Myles Runham, Head of Online, BBC
Academy will be talking with us about his experience of using social media. The
BBC has long created online education and learning content but the promotional
and discoverability side of this is less widely discussed. This seminar,
therefore, offers us an opportunity to find out how the BBC uses social media,
why they use it, and what benefits they expect to gain from it.
