She is obsessed with learning and information, with a strong interest in MOOCs which she believes has formed the perfect foundation for her job as a learning designer. She is really interested in learning the workings of designing blended and online courses and as a serial MOOC taker, she is excited to experience the behind the scenes aspects of creating a MOOC.
