me on Monday about to investigate

popping in for a quick wave from my computer before I hurry off to a briefing on a murder and start the investigation !

during a quiet weekend of reading, binging on 8 episodes of Dr Who (the David Tennant iteration) and dodging rain I saw a trailer for a free 6 week online course in forensic science which teaches through a case study of a murder investigation.  I remember hearing reports about it last year so decided to sign up this year for some educational past time.  Interested ?  anyone can sign up and it is free at future learn – there is no test but discussion on who you think did it is encouraged. These massive on-line courses seem to be taking off and cover a vast range of topics delivered by top class universities.  Has anyone done one?

A Monday wave is Sian’s lovely idea.

Hope you all have a good week, back to ‘normality’ after the festive fortnight.

You're a bad influence on me ... I've signed up for this as well - just the sort of thing I like. That's my Monday evening's entertainment sorted!

There's a girl here who would be fascinated by this. She got a forensic kit for Christmas a couple of years ago. Let us know how it goes.

I did the Laura Ingalls Wilder class and I'm looking forward to the second instalment in the Spring.

Have a great week Helena

Golly, now there's a class I never would have thought existed! That sounds fascinating ... Looking forward to hear more - if you are allowed to give us regular press briefings, that is :).

Class sounds interesting. Have fun!

Well that certainly is an interesting course to do Helena!! I hope you enjoy it.
I've been binging on art journal video tutorials - it's good to do a course or two during the winter when we can wrap up warm indoors and make good use of the time.

Sounds like fun but not for me: too close to my work as a lab tech!!! But maybe I should check out other courses...

Ooh, Dr Who binges are always fun, and that course sounds fun, too! I signed up for a massive online class through EdX, but I confess I haven't actually got around to doing it yet.

Waving back to you.
