Which pitch would you have voted for at the Designing Online Learning for the Future Hack Day?
Hack Day wasn’t just an opportunity to gather great ideas – we’re keen to build on the day by increasing student participation in the development of modules and tools, so they better suit their needs.
Events such as Hack Day are important for bringing people together, helping them to network and share their ideas and talents, and giving them a hand to develop their own hacks into real solutions.
