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, currently a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Communication Sciences at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI, University of Lugano). I focus the research interests mainly on eLearning in particular within the area of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). I am also an Entrepreneur in overseas education support. Novelist in Douban. Dog friend.

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.

I am planning to defend my PhD thesis and graduate in 2018. It is going to be a compilation of publications of me over the 3-year PhD period.
