Forums have now been replaced by the OpenLearn Comments feature. At the end of each page you will find a section where you can read or add comments of your own. You will need to register for a free account in order to join in the conversation.

From August 2012 LearningSpace will no longer support personal Learning journals and content will be removed.
To help you to move your blog to an alternative blogging platform, we have created a set of instructions. This ‘Migrate your Learning Journal’ feature allows you to move your learning journal posts, comments and tags to one of the world’s most popular open source blogging systems, WordPress.
If you do not have a WordPress blog already then please sign up for free at wordpress.com. It only takes a few minutes.
To move the content of your Learning journal, you will first need to access it on LearningSpace and select the 'Migrate your Learning Journal' link. This will then take you to a set of instructions that will enable you to create a backup and move to WordPress.
Once you have completed the process you can continue to enjoy reviewing your imported posts, comments and tags.
If you have created any links between posts, then you will need to manually review and adjust these within the WordPress editing facilities.
