The student voice in action! Students taking part in a design sprint to inform the work of the TEL Project this morning. Being discussed here, the top level tasks students need to undertake in the online learning environment – next … Continue reading →
The TEL Project is currently exploring the how to better integrate the systems that support learning and teaching within the university, with the outcome of improving students’ online experience and making it easier for academic staff to access and use a broader range of online teaching tools. Critical to the success of the project is having the input of both students and academics. You are invited to a design sprint workshop, where participants will be briefed on the outline plans for the integration of current and future technology-enhanced learning systems, and have the opportunity to help refine the emerging designs so that they can best meet the needs of academic staff and students. The process is interactive and facilitated, and no previous design experience is required. Following the design sprint, the project team will use participants’ input on designs to improve and enhance future technology-enhanced learning systems.
We are testing a new Moodle plugin for attendance monitoring. It can be set up to allow students to self-report attendance; and has various features to try and minimise false reporting, such as restricting access to on-campus users, not allowing multiple attempts from the same device, password protection and time release. Staff can also use the tool to take a manual attendance. Anyone who is interested in trying this out, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
