Honestly in Year 2 I rarely used WebCT because I found that it's not quite useful.<br /> But now most of the information I can only get from the WebCT.<br /> And also many of the resources are quite useful, like the video part. Previously we just didn’t have it - especially for the resource sessions of other years.<br />
2008 ‘Blended learning’ approach<br />Moving from asynchronous to synchronous modes…<br />from a digital repository approach <br />to an interactive blending of technology within tutorials…<br />
Embedding learning tools to support PBL<br />Bridges, S.M, Dyson, J.E., Corbet E. F. (2009). Blended learning, knowledge co-construction and undergraduate group work. Medical Education. (43)<br />
2009 Supporting blended learning <br />Closer integration of learning technologies with face-to-face teaching<br />Accessing both in-house learning objects and online resources within the tutorials using IWBs<br />Supports the group knowledge-construction process as students: <br />Access, display, manipulate and annotate the learning objects <br />Save and share files of their group’s responses<br />
