This week, you have learned about many different tools and technologies – including social media – that can be used in online education.

Next week, you will look at another side of social media’s role in online education – the role of facilitating the creation and development of your own networks.

While you contemplate all the tools and technologies covered in this week, let’s see how Rita has been coping with all this useful information.
