Focusing on the VLE

As discussed before on this blog Jisc have been conducting a light-touch review of our Virtual Learning Environment (Gateway). The review has looked at areas including student engagement, curriculum delivery and accessibility.

Last week Zac Gribble and John Sumpter from Jisc visited the campus to run a series of focus groups with staff and students looking at what works and what could be improved with our digital delivery. The will be delivering a report with recommendations for improvements.

The Jisc team enjoyed meeting the focus group attendees and were impressed with our Gateway content.

John Sumpter commented that: “RAU are in a good starting position for taking things forward” and that “reviewing your VLE use is an ongoing activity that compliments your digital strategy”.
