This site is for members of staff who seek to realise the benefits of learning technologies in the blended delivery, assessment, and administration of their courses. While we use the term E-Learning, this is interchangeable with Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), Digital Learning, or Online Learning.  One day, however, this will be referred to simply as learning.

What is E-Learning?

E-Learning can be described as learning activities facilitated and supported through the use of a broad range of information and communication technologies. Examples include:

  • Discussion fora to build confidence, develop writing skills, encourage deeper approaches to learning, to extend and support full participation in discussions, and in support of group project work
  • Online submission of formative and summative assignments to check against plagiarism and collusion
  • Online marking of formative and summative assignments to facilitate the rapid turnaround and timely receipt of feedback
  • Gathering of student feedback and 'feed-forward' through the use of voting, survey and discussion tools
  • Leveraging personal technology (smart phones, tablets, laptops) or 'Clickers' in class to test and address understanding, interact easily, and respond to student feedback
  • Recording and making available for review lecture content, including slides and audio
  • Allowing students to record and upload presentations with their own devices
  • Online peer marking and feedback
  • Diversifying reading lists by inviting cohorts to create them online
  • Providing alternative formats for disabled and non-disabled students

How is E-Learning supported?

The Moodle upgrade, rollover and archiving is complete! (July 23)

IT Services and the E-Learning Team upgraded the College Moodle service during July 21-23 2021.  The primary objective of this work was to ensure the continued security and stability of the service.  The upgrade - to version 3.10 of Moodle - also delivered a range of significant enhancements, which can be described in terms of accessibility, usability, engagement and assessment.

In addition to the upgrade, the Moodle service will be improved and extended by new tools, as requested by Schools and academic departments.  These will be rolled out throughout August and September 2021.

Panopto Rollover: Your action is required (Summer 2021)

  1. The majority of Panopto recordings will not be rolled over automatically.
  2. Manual intervention from staff members is needed to carry forward appropriate content.
