    Hi, I have enjoyed the many resources you share about the online classroom environment. While travelling last year to 6 European countries, I was able to take my classroom with me in every country. Something was not possible when I initially studied some many moons ago.

    I am currently studying my masters with University of Liverpool and as part of the Social Computing module we are doing, we have built a blog to share our experiences with online education. I would appreciate if you could visit our blog on https://thutogroup2.wordpress.com/category/lorraine/ , its a blog I author with my other 2 colleagues based in the UK.

    regards,

Online learning has to be the greatest revolution in contemporary education. It made a huge change in the system and opened great opportunities for everyone who wants to learn something.
