Good afternoon. Thanks for coming. In this presentation, I aim to describe how we have encouraged and supported the development of e-learning resources in all the teaching teams across Aberdeen College. I will then hand you over to my colleagues (on video) to showcase their work. Firstly some background information about the college.

Student Views on Using the VLE In the most recent student questionnaire, 94% of respondents expressed satisfaction in the VLE
“ ..an excellent tool as you can always look back at past lessons and catch up without too much bother. VLE was new to me when I came back to College and I now think how did we manage before?” “ I find Blackboard very useful. I am off quite regularly with health issues. It helps me to catch up faster.”
All lecturers complete training in using Blackboard
