First Skype Meeting with Prof Gráinne Conole

This article acts as the third log entry of my 22-day stay in Dublin City University for my PhD thesis and possible research and project collaboration with the host research unit – National Institute for Digital Learning (NIDL) of DCU.


Today I finally got the chance to meet Gráinne ( And below I share with you the conversation I had with her in a 35 minutes’ Skype talk.


Gráinne is an Irish name and should be properly pronounced as “Gronia” (like “onia” in Sonia).


So first of all, I presented my three missions to be in Dublin.

  • PhD thesis
  • Interview coding and analysis for MOOC instructor interviews’ scripts
  • JoHLSTE manuscript revision

A folder has been shared with three sub-folders related to these three missions in Google Drive.


Then Gráinne made the following comments.
