These videos formed part of the E-learning and Digital Cultures MOOC, an influential MOOC from the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Research in Digital Education that launched on Coursera in 2012.  The course was led by Dr Jeremy Knox, Prof Sian Bayne, Dr Hamish Macleod, Dr Jen Ross and Dr Christine Sinclair, and was aimed at teachers, learning technologists, and people with a general interest in education who wanted to deepen their understanding of what it means to teach and learn in the digital age. The course focused on how digital cultures intersect with learning cultures online, and how ideas about online education are shaped through “narratives”, or big stories, about the relationship between people and technology. The course explored some of the most engaging perspectives on digital culture in its popular and academic forms, and considered how our practices as teachers and learners are informed by the difference of the digital, while also looking at how learning and literacy is represented in popular digital, or cyber, culture.
