Road-testing Destiny MOOCs at Staffordshire University

Last week the Destiny MOOC project took to the road and visited the Nursing and Midwifery School at Staffordshire University. Led by Carl Plant of bitjam – one of our British partner’s – students were given the chance to experience e-learning courses designed specifically for mobile use, to expand their learning opportunities and encourage interaction with online courses via mobile.

“E-learning courses made purely for mobile are shaping the future of education as they’re easy to use, accessible to all and provide tools for learning that can be carried around in pockets and used on the go” – bitjam. Part of the Destiny project aims to provide health and social care e-learning, as well as being a noticeboard for news and updates, such as details about local relevant study clubs.

Bitjam partnered with Erasmus+ on the Destiny Project as they have skilled experience in integrating healthcare and education resources to expand the use of technology in the public sector. This is something that bitjam are passionate about so their input has created a fantastic co-production process to the project.

Bitjam created the Destiny MOOC learning management system is based on the popular Moodle with a key focus on mobile accessibility. In case you missed it, Moodle is a learning platform designed to provide educators, administrators and learners with a single robust, secure and integrated system to create personalised learning environments.

Feedback from the the students who took part in the user testing was positive, focussing on the benefits of mobile learning experiences. One student commented “This means I can learn while I’m on the train, neat!!”

We will continue to bring you updates on the progress of Destiny e-learning from various European partners, so look out for them on our website or follow us on Twitter at @moocdestiny.
