Hi folks, my name is Alex and I live just outside Crieff, about 20mins from Perth. I am originally from Templepatrick, just outside Belfast in Northern Ireland.
I am currently looking at a dissertation linking the work, actions and legacy of William Wallace with the work and actions of Robert the Bruce in bringing about Scottish Independence in 1320. I intend to look at the experiences of Wallace and Bruce in key events such as the Battles of Stirling, Falkirk and Bannockburn and how they led to the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320.
Learning online has been a bit of experience, but as last semester progressed I became more comfortable being on camera for the seminars. The only issue I have to contend with is the fact, on a good day, I get 1.5mbps Wi-Fi speed which can make contributing in seminars difficult if other people are using the Wi-Fi at home.
