Twelve Apps of Christmas is an online programme that first ran through in December 2014. It was tailored for academic staff (lecturers, librarians, student support staff and others) at Regent’s University London. We covered the basics and some more advanced tips on using 12 educational apps.
Over the twelve days of the programme, a post was published with the day’s task at 10am, so that participants could work through it whenever they had ten minutes or more spare in the day.
Each post contained instructions on a different app, together with tailored suggestions of how to use it with students and how it might work effectively for the participants in their professional context.
Each task took no more than ten minutes a day (although there were ‘Further Tasks’, which took more time).
We used Twitter hashtag #RUL12AoC during the course. After the live programme, the materials were be left up to refer back to later.
