Ontario Extend mOOC
In January of 2019 I embarked on a new adventure with eCampus Ontario through the Ontario Extend mOOC. Through this adventure I became an empowered educator and the experience was transformational. I started out thinking I would try one module, finished the entire MOOC and earned my empowered educator badge. Read about my MOOC activities and reflections.
