• Dialling Down The Volume: Change to Blackboard Notifications

    On 1 March 2024, we will make a change in Blackboard whereby notifications for new content being added to a course will be disabled as a default for student users, with the option for students to be able to opt-in if they wish to continue receiving notifications for content.

    This screenshot shows the personal preferences screen for email notifications in Blackboard. The 'new content added' notification setting is highlighted in red.

  • Staff Digital Experience Survey

    Over the past couple of years the pandemic brought challenges which required us to think differently about digital education and technology. Since then, experiences, confidence and expectations of digital education have changed for both staff and students. In collaboration with CLT and our Senior Solstice Fellows, we’re looking to gain insight into the support, guidance, tools and services we provide for digital learning.

    One of the first parts of this enquiry will be understanding our staff and students’ current digital experiences and confidence levels, but looking to the future of what the expectations are of a modern digital university experience. To gain some of this initial insight we’ll be running JISC’s Digital Insights Survey from early 2024.

    The JISC Digital Insights Survey is a chance to provide students and staff a voice to provide us with a clearer, data informed picture of where we are in our digital journey, but more importantly where we see the future and how can the institution support us to get there. The insights from the survey will help us to make informed decisions about our digital environment and target resources to support with confidence, guidance and tools to get us there.
