Websites and webapps
We create a wide range of web applications to enhance teaching and learning. See our gallery for some examples.
We work closely with ITS staff to ensure that these web applications are available to students and staff on the same basis as other central services such as Blackboard.
Please feel free to contact Russell Butson to discuss your ideas or specific development projects.
Some of our projects have been funded by the Committee for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching (CALT) which invites applications for grants each year. Visit the CALT website for more information.
Teaching with multimedia
Video and audio clips can help to communicate some ideas in an engaging way. Some ways of using recordings of teaching and learning activities include:
- the provision of material for revision
- demonstration of physical or practical skills or procedures
- supporting reflection on performance
- gathering material for research into teaching
To support these kinds of goals we offer a complete service of recording and distributing teaching and learning activities in an appropriate format. We also offer advice and support for teachers who wish to evaluate the impact of their recordings on student learning and their teaching.
We share excellent facilities with Information Technology Services (ITS) in the AVSDU (Audio-Visual Support and Development Unit) and can provide a complete studio set-up for the recording of interviews, demonstrations, and role-plays. A separate sound booth is available for audio recordings. We also have an editing suite available for use by staff who would like to edit their own material.
If you’d like some ideas or have a problem that you’d like help with, you’re welcome to get in touch.
ITS eResearch Toolbox
Information Technology Services provides a comprehensive toolbox of supported technologies that can be utilised by staff in their teaching, including blogs, wikis and podcast services. If you would like to discuss ways to integrate these technologies with your current teaching regime, please contact Russell Butson.
