  4. 4. Existing support resources ‘pre-handbook’ Mix of how-to guides, pedagogical advice and case studies in a searchable index on the VLE. Difficult to follow and difficult to find a ‘way in’ to embedding tech into existing teaching practice. Were staff actually using them?
  5. 5. Existing support resources ‘pre-handbook’ Mapping exercise of current resources
  6. 6. Problem of staff not using existing resources Team’s website, VLE help tab and guides search redesigned alongside handbook development
  7. 7. Structure of Handbook and intended use Inspired by the 3E approach to go ‘Beyond the Baseline’ Accessibility, navigation and evaluation

  14. 14. What we learnt Gave us chance to evaluate the tools we were recommending. Mapping and adapting existing support resources alerted us to gaps that needed filling. Able to try out different tools and create accessible learning materials in different formats – Visme, PowToon, Google docs for guides. A resource we can draw on in articles, newsletters, workshops etc.
