Helping to create a "Flipped Classroom" using Mashhop

Just before this year's International Entrepreneurship Educators Conference in Plymouth in September, Matthew Draycott (@DraycottMC) circulated a few of us about an idea he had to work together to develop an on-line resource that would be available to all Enterprise Educators who contributed to it. You can read about Matt's idea on his blog here.

You will have seen that those of us who are "on board" need to produce a 20 minute lecture on a suitable topic. I had been think about having a go at videoing my lectures and so Matt's timing was excellent....

My newly designed website

by Nigel on Monday, September 10, 2012 7:00 PM

At long last I have arranged for my website to be updated and I hope you agree that Oliver Loftus has done a great job.

I think that the new design is much easier to navigate, but the site still retains, in the "Archive", all the information from my old Nigel Adams & Company Ltd website.

I plan to keep blogging, probably too irregularly, but at least my Twitter Feed will be regularly updated.

Please have a look around and let me know what you think about the website and how I could improve it for students, colleagues and other visitors.
