Current students have received an email about this recently, so this is an announcement aimed primarily at visitors and our alumni. In September 2013, the MSc in E-learning programme name will change to MSc in Digital Education!
In a fast-moving field like ours it’s important to try to keep up with the use of terms as they shift, and it’s our view that “e-learning” is a term that is going to become less representative than it is now of the diversity of our courses and areas of interest. As a team, we feel that the new name reflects the range of topics and ideas the programme covers.
The plan is to make a ‘phased’ transition so that our well-known and much loved “MSc in E-learning” name is published alongside “Digital Education” for a significant period of time.
So, if you start to see mention of this new name, don’t be surprised! It’s still us, and the programme remains the same (in a vibrant, dynamic way, of course!).
Thanks, all, and happy holidays.
