MOOC-it.com is a website that was built for tracking my personal MOOC exploration journey, which leads to my PhD thesis on such topic.
I am Jingjing Lin, an entrepreneur in the field of eLearning and educational technologies. I am working full time on my Swiss startup – Aha Education Sagl, based in Lugano, Switzerland. Before that, I was a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Communication Sciences at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI, University of Lugano). I focused the research interests mainly on eLearning in particular within the area of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses).
Raised up in China, I received my bachelor degree in the area of management from the Harbin Engineering University, China. Afterwards, I moved to Hong Kong for master programme study specializing in eLearning. In the following four years after my graduation from The University of Hong Kong (HKU), I continued to serve in the Hong Kong communities by contributing in various projects closely related to eLearning in both the industry sectors and the local universities.
In January 2018, I passed my oral defense of the PhD thesis at Università della Svizzera italiana and graduated after the 3-year PhD study period.
