EduHack Online Course FAQs

Who can participate?

The course is open to anyone who has access to a computer or a smartphone and the internet.

How does the course work?

The course is structured along four learning areas (Digital resources, Teaching, Assessment and Empowering learners). Within each area learners are provided with a number of activities. Learners are free to choose which activities to run and in which order.

What do I need to do?

This is an open and self-paced course. You can work through each topic at your own pace and share what you have learned either on your own blog or on the EduHack Wall. If you want to work through the content in the course and don’t want to blog about it that’s fine too, but we won’t be able to provide you with a Certificate of Participation.

Will I receive a certificate?

Every participant who completes at least two activities per area and reflects this on their blog will be awarded with a Certificate of Participation.

How long does the course take?

Everyone can work at their own pace. Some activities may already be familiar to you and could be quickly completed, while others may be new and require more time to explore. If you decide to follow the course as part of a cohort, a whole week will be dedicated to each of the areas (four weeks in total), with a dedicated time of around one hour for each activity. So, to get a certificate you would need around two hours per week for four weeks.

Do I have to set up a blog?

You can work through the course without setting up a blog. However, reflective and open blogging is a core part of the programme, so, if you intend to fully participate in the activities and to get a Certificate of Participation at the end of the course, you will be required to blog. You can do this by utilising your existing blog, you can set up a tailor made EduHack blog, or post (anonymously if you prefer) about your experience in the online course on our public blogging space – the EduHack Wall.

How can I create my blog?

If you don’t have a blog already, you can either register one here or post (under your real name or anonymously) on our EduHack Wall. If you don’t want to decide now, when you register to the course you will be given these details again about the different blogging options.
