Students studying on the April cohort of Pre-Reg Nursing and ODP (Operating Departmental Practice) are the first to have been offered both online part-registration and a dedicated new tab within Learning Edge.
Since acquiring Community as a bolt-on to Learning Edge, there has been much work done around how to best use it for the benefit of both staff and students.
We knew from student feedback that accessing library e-resources from within Learning Edge is helpful. Our priority development was the library resources tab, made available to all students in January … but we wanted to take it much further …
So a project commenced in January to bring a new area within the Learning Edge environment that allows the students to have direct access to the subject-specific library resources that they will use most often including reading lists, frequently used databases and journal titles and also a Twitter feed and subject resources. This tab has been called ‘Your FoHSC Resources‘.
Having ready access to subject resources in a tab managed by our Academic Liaison Librarians will, we hope, help students to locate and use key resources for their course. It is our intention to extend subject-specific library resources tabs to all by September and to work with Faculties and Departments on developing their own tab and panels.
