  • Introduce myself
  • Paul saw the need for a new group within LRS to manage technology that enhances learning – hence TeLIT (implementation team) to implement Tel StrategyWith exception of Gareth, who ran Moodle on his own – team made up from LRS members of staffMyself, part-time Librarian with remote services – Library Moodle pages etc.First things in my job was to create a set of Standards for our vle – virtual learning environment - MoodleMedia Developer cam from MAPP – media & print production
  • Focus was managing and developingBut also training and supporting
  • JISC VLE Forum – difficulties of implementing standards.
  • Webinar by Vicki Weavers who then worked at Weston College detailing the process they had been through to try and implement the Standards and that was invaluable! It’s easy to write standards it is much harder to make them work in practice.
  • Others standards were very helpful, but we needed to fit them to our institution. Accessibility of resource and documentsIssue of compliance – getting the standards accepted.
  • Paul came up from the benchmarking with a concept for each medalExplain the medals. Practical examples
  • Development cycle – explain. Early days – but we are marketing the early awards and creating a healthy air of competition. We are providing support and training – bespoke and on training days – Moodle clinics etc.
  • Implementation plan involved a process
  • Since Last year – team is about a year old. Minimum standards – complianceInterest in the medals is spreading. Annual audit identified standards and this information will be passed back to faculties at MTR’s First Silver site -
  • Lots of stats College produces from Management Information SystemAble to correlate that with use of say, Silver star sites compared to sites without medals. Scroll of death
