Jorum widgets march 2011


Published on

This presentation was provided at the JISC11 conference, March 2011.

The Jorum team has been developing a set of free embeddable widgets which will allow you to view and find relevant learning and teaching resources, and receive updates when new resources are added to Jorum. The widgets will also enable you to share and promote your own resources from the University – all directly from your own website/VLE, with minimal technical effort.

You can find out more about our widgets at, further details will be released in due course.

If you have any questions, or would like to try a widget, please contact

Jorum is a free online repository service for teaching and support staff in UK Further and Higher Education Institutions. Helping to build a community for the sharing, reuse and repurposing of learning and teaching resources, created by the community for the community.
