"Teaching is more than just filling students with knowledge: it is about sparking their interest and inspiring them."
Dr Gregor Campbell, Department of Cell & Developmental Biology
E-Learning Environments (ELE)
E-learning and its associated technologies are an essential part of the 21st-century university, enabling lecturers to reach students beyond the lecture theatre and seminar room, and giving students unlimited access to learning resources.
The role of ELE is to lead, support and promote the use of technology to enhance learning, teaching and the student experience. They run courses, workshops, masterclasses and briefings, and encourage and support formal and informal networks.
- Moodle – the core institutional e-learning environment used by all taught students
- E-assessment and feedback – this growth area includes online quizzes, plagiarism prevention, online assignments and support for written exams
- MyPortfolio – an online portfolio to store and present materials, reflect on experiences and learning, and demonstrate achievement
- Electronic voting system – used in the classroom to check understanding, gauge opinion, and encourage interaction – especially effective in large lectures
- Web Conferencing – a new service allowing classes to meet online using desktop conferencing tools
- E-examinations - guidance and support on running exams using computers.
