bullet  CAP E-Learning Guides for Electronic Resources

The CAP series of E-Guides offer both broad and specific guidance on a range of e-learning topics, from an overview of e-learning technologies and their role in teaching, learning and assessment, to information about support and funding available at the University. There are currently 21 e-guides organised into the themes and each includes further sources of reading and guidance.


bullet  Building and Sharing Community Resources

Exchange for Learning (X4L)

This website has been developed to showcase some of the learning materials that have been repurposed so far, and also some of the tools that are attempting to make the processes of repurposing and sharing resources easier for everyone to attempt themselves.

In this website, you will find

  • further information about the aims of X4L
  • demonstrations of two prototype tools and a range of learning materials repurposed using different approaches.
  • a rolling demonstration of the project websites
  • short Powerpoint slide shows produced by the project teams themselves to explain what they have been doing.
  • links to learning materials, reports and other materials

bullet  Sit Back and Relax

A Guide to Producing Readable, Accessible Onscreen Text

The site provide guidance on how to format text documents, especially long text documents, so that they may be easily read from computer screens without the need to print them off. To some this may seem an odd goal, but it remains the case that within education, perhaps especially higher education, large bodies of continuous text (books, journals etc.) remain and are likely to remain for the foreseeable future the primary medium of academic discourse; and that discourse is increasingly being conducted online.
