  • Understanding our student and staff experience of learning technologies

    ‘Nothing endures but change’. Heraclitus. So true. This time a year ago I was urging students to complete the 6th EHU Student e-Learning Survey and a whopping 798 actually did. Today I am able to publish the full report and recommendations based on the analysis of that survey’s results. We are very grateful for our […]

  • Lecture capture … what’s in a name?

    That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet. To paraphrase Juliet’s speech to Romeo, what matters is what something is, not what it is called. The term lecture capture is a case in point as it invokes a whole range of responses and assumptions. As Edge Hill are rolling out […]

  • Students, technology and study – still time to have your say!

    The 6th EHU student eLearning Survey is an important means of gathering large-scale, detailed feedback on how students experience technology in teaching and learning.

  • The 6th Student eLearning Survey (and Prize Draw)

    Where does the time go? The sixth EHU student eLearning survey is now live. Telling us your experiences and expectations of the technology you use to support your learning helps us to understand what works and what doesn’t.

  • Abandon survey fatigue and tell us what you think!

    Learning Services have run an annual student e-learning survey since 2008. This year we thought we’d do something different and focus on the academic staff experience instead. You may have seen slides on the plasma screens or received a flyer exhorting staff to take part in the Learning Services survey … and to date 70 […]

  • Can someone explain what’s going on here?

    The 5th EHU Student eLearning survey still has just over a week or so left to run but I thought  I’d share with you an interesting and unusual finding from the large number of responses we have received so far. In the survey we ask students to respond to the statements On/off campus I sometimes […]

  • Students have your say – and win Amazon vouchers #2

    My last blog post focused on last year’s student eLearning survey winners so I thought this time it  would be helpful to explain why we think the annual survey is so important. The Student eLearning Survey is now 5 years old and is an important means of finding out how technology supports student learning at […]

  • Students – have your say and win Amazon vouchers!

    EHU’s fifth student eLearning survey was launched this week and in exchange for your  views and experiences of technology we are offering one £50 and two £25 Amazon vouchers in a prize draw. We know how precious your time is, so as an additional thank you for completing the survey, we are also giving away […]

  • Making things happen: behind the scenes (part 2)

    In our last post we focused on the Learning Services team and their roles in the technical development and staff training for Blackboard 9.1. This time, we thought we’d introduce the colleagues who work with our Learning Technologists, David Callaghan and Adrian Cain: Kevin English (Assistant Registrar, Data Management & User Support Team, Academic Registry), […]
