OCR MOOC – new materials now available

A very short, but very important post today (I’d write more, but I have to hop on a plane). As you’ll know if you’re a regular reader, we’ve been supporting the exam board OCR in their production of Cambridge GCSE Computing, a Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) for kids and teachers – and everybody else – which is structured around their highly regarded Computing GCSE.

Clive demonstrates some fundamental computing concepts for the MOOC using some sprouts, a few prawns and a blender.

OCR have just released the second phase of development, and there are now 80 videos live on the site, along with supporting materials. This MOOC is still under development, so the final version will not be structured in quite the way you see here; but there’s plenty of material for you to work your way through already, and our friends at OCR would love to hear what your thoughts. You can read much more about the project in an article from today’s V3 (just as well, really, given that I have to drive to the airport in a few minutes). Let us know what you think in the comments!
