Online Learning

The now and next of global digital education


Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Lauren Johnston-Smith, and I work for the University of Edinburgh, marketing our online learning portfolio. You can find out more about our 70 online masters degrees on our website:

I’ve been marketing online degrees at the University since 2010, and consider myself an ambassador for online learning both within and outside of the University.

In this blog I’ll be sharing my thoughts on online education, usually, but not always, from a marketing perspective. Thoughts are my own and not necessarily that of the University of Edinburgh.
