This is my introductory post for ETMOOC. I am Frances Bell and ,until 31 January, a Senior Lecturer in the University of Salford, and then who knows what?  I will definitely be spending more time in my beloved garden.
I enjoyed CCK08 my first MOOC, and I even wrote this paper and that paper from my experiences there. and I am looking forward to finding out more about this one.

I am @francesbell on Twitter and hope to meet interesting folk at ETMOOC.

I left full-time employment as a Senior Lecturer in Information Systems, Salford Business School in January 2013. Since then, I only take on projects that interest me, and try to make time for the things I struggled to do when I was at work - travel, gardening, textile crafts. I am still interested in the impact of the digital on life - work, learning, play. I volunteer as an IT buddy at Macclesfield Library and do research on informal learning online.

    1. I’ve used G+ a bit… but Twitter is still my main hub. However, the Communities feature in G+ is good — streams for Intros & Topics mean that posts can be viewed in those threads (or all at once). And the ability to write longer posts is useful. Here’s a great capture I picked up from Howard Rheingold in the #etmooc Community yesterday:

      See you there 🙂
