This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

I've always been interested in the topic of remote teaching & learning, from looking at the possibilities for online teaching of computer programming as a dissertation topic at college through to my studies in the 1980s and beyond with the Open University. And last week I noticed that MIT were planning to offer their first online course, and in a topic which interested me. So I've signed up and start this coming Monday!

The course – offered through MITx – is called 6.002x (Circuits and Electronics) and looks really interesting and likely to reinforce the work I'm doing in the hardware hacking field (which I write about on sheHacks ), and building on what my father taught me about electronics when I was very young.

More updates as the course starts!
