Two big changes have been completed over the summer to our moodle based platform:
Users of Languages@Warwick no longer have to remember different user account details, you can sign in using your ITS account details. If you are new to working with us, your account will be linked to your course during the next week or so, as enrolment is completed.
Our site also has a fresh new look, in line with Warwick's new branding. You will be able to access your course materials and interact with your group and tutor from your laptop, tablet or smartphone too. We hope you like it.
Contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

Language Centre powered by digital media
The Clavier virtual exchange project is now in its 4th year and this year implemented open badges to credentialise the computer-mediated communication skills our participants are acquiring.
This year we are implementing Open Badging in the EWC course.
You can read more about the Open Badges project here:
The EWC course is part of a project known as Clavier. The course area connects about 900 students who are learning English or French and also includes teacher trainees within Languages@Warwick. The project is now in its 4th year and you can find out more about it through the unicollaboration website. It merges boundaries between the formal classroom and informal learning, prioritising lifelong learning. Hashtags are used to share community interaction through informal networks (eg. #clavier #clerwar, #warcler).
To all Languages@Warwick users.
After a complete platform review this year we have decided to change our hosting provider to Moodlerooms. This will bring numerous advantages including:
o a more modern look and feel
o better support for our key plug ins (BB collaborate, Kaltura, Equella)
o additional reporting and analytics for all users
o easier sub-theming for other users who have their own categories on the site
