Reorganisation of eLearning provision at NTU need to look at the way we support staff
In 2010 EDU resources divided into 3 services previous the Educational Development Unit based in the library had two teams Training & Support – training on the VLE & Admin support for our VLE Desire2Learn Educational Development Support guidance and consultancy on the use of technology in learning and teaching; curriculum redesign towards blended learning Services were split between 3 teams Quality & Enhancement Training & Development & Information Systems Moving away from supporting small scale project and focus on widescale impact projects
Looking at the challenges that were presented wanted to produce a resource that was self-supporting but we did not have a web presence because of the reconfiguration of the service so decide to use the VLE Where do we start look at strategy at what we know people want Thinking about NHS direct simple structure and replicate that is some way
Content written by eLearning Developers & Technology and Learning Development adviser userguieds Reviewed by Senior eLearnin Developer & Technology and Learning Development Manager Very detailed production process I oversaw the whole process Resource disaggregated into various parts each published to our learning repository with hashtag TELT
This is the homepage of our resources
This is the navigation of the resource
This is example of one of our pages
Use a variety of mechanisms for staff engagement with respect to TELT we held a webinar series to compliment the subjects covered with average attendance of 5 people content has also been repurposed for training courses
We have recently evaluated the resources and these are our finding it was very challenging getting feedback not all entirely favourable given the amount of work and resources that went into it we use the resource a lot to support our own work
Trying to making future production less resource intensive and making it easier to slip in quick guides we have a couple already that we have produce It has probably been most use to us to support our work in training and consultancy staff want quick access to up-to-date guidance on the VLE and contextual information from NTU
