I have been following the Learning studio with interest and they just hit the one year mark, congratulations.
It’s hard to believe but the Learning Studio opened its doors to the campus last March. In that time we’ve seen over a thousand camera and equipment check-outs, are averaging 900 room reservations a month, and have offered dozens of workshops and training sessions for students and faculty.
Today’s online surgery/webinar on ‘Getting started with ebooks‘ attracted 150 registrations and around 100 folk turned up at the top of the hour.
The turnout confirms that there is much interest on this topic and I hope to carry this energy into at least 1 project this year.
See my ‘notes on ebooks‘ for a collection of links from the past year or so that I continue to add to.
JISC elevator is a new way to find and fund innovative ways to use technology to improve universities and colleges. Anyone employed in UK higher or further education can submit an idea. If your idea proves popular then JISC will consider it for funding. The elevator is for small, practical projects with up to £10,000 available for successful ideas.
