Elevate Newsletter: September 2011

Our three bullet newsletter for September 2011

  1. The Mahara e-Portfolio is available at UCS (http:/mahara.ucs.ac.uk). This service was funded by ILTS money, and is being used to support the Graduate Head Start Programme. However, it is also available for those who need their students to maintain an e-portfolio for assessment purposes.

  2. GoTo Webinar is available at UCS. This service is a dedicated desktop conference tool which is externally hosted with GoTo Meeting (http://www.gotomeeting.com). This will allow you to connect people and places virtually. It is perfect for teaching, small group seminars, 1-2-1 support and meetings. This service was funded from the Elevate Team Software Budget. For more information about how you can start using this simply email elevate@ucs.ac.uk

  3. Staff development - hub & spoke model. The pilot of the hub & spoke model worked really well with ECS over the summer. This involved a learning technologist being based in the Division to support staff and projects. For you book this service, Heads of Division need to email Andy Ramsden (a.ramsden@ucs.ac.uk)

For more information, please email us (elevate@ucs.ac.uk)
