Week 1 - Introductions

9th-15th January 2012


During week one, we will be getting to know each other and getting a better idea of what to expect during the workshop. Participants will register on our Moodle and will introduce themselves. There will also be opportunities to meet everyone, and to be introduced to the subject of the workshop by attending the first weekly webinar by a guest speaker who has extensive experience of using Interactive Fiction (text adventure games) with language learners.



  • Please register for an account in our Moodle. Confirm your account by responding to the email we will send you.
  • Once your account has been approved, please introduce yourself in our 'Getting to Know You' forum
