  2. 2. A NOOC IN A MOOC WORLD On Course for Your Masters A Postgraduate Problem? Review of information skills provision for taught course students in 2014/15 led to a new offer. It was designed to scaffold a student’s academic journey, supporting key transitions. Problem: how could this be achieved for PGTs who are mostly on one year programmes? Wider context: PGT Review was about to recommend an expansion of distance/digital learning M-level courses

  11. 11. A NOOC IN A MOOC WORLD On Course for Your Masters “I graduated from my first degree almost ten years ago. I therefore felt I needed the course to help my transition back into education. I needed help remembering how to study, how to reference and write essays etc. The course has been brilliant for this.” "I can live in Japan and still complete the course.“ “It was a good overview of the study skills I have used and also helped me to feel more confident about my ability to tackle the course and make the most of it.” “This was great for fine tuning my search skills for more successful research” “I found it helpful to have a support network of other students as it helps you to feel part of a network and to feel supported.” “This NOOC is an extremely important resource for distance students who rely on online information to learn how to access books, articles, etc."
