ET accepted to present at HEA Arts & Humanities Conference

This week we recieved the happy news that our submission to the Higher Education Arts and Humanities had been successful.

The title of our presentation “A trusty tale of technology adoption…because change isn’t always bad” had some good feedback from the reviewers as it relates closely to the conference theme of extra-ordinary tales of learning and teaching. 

Our presentation focuses on ‘The Move’ project which took place over the summer and how a personal approach can be of benefit when making technology changes.

The conference has a strong narrative theme running through it, involving heroes and monsters. So we’re very much forward to getting into character and taking Falmouth to Manchester, in June.   

Learning Space: A new hope

Finally, after all the consultation, the new Learning Space has gone live…

You must have been getting pretty tired of seeing the following every time you visited:

The old Learning Space has now been renamed and moved to Learning Archive – should you need it. We highly recommend this link is only used for reference and not shared with students.

This is the first of a string of posts about change. There will be more to come, so watch this space.

What’s been happening over the summer?

In response to Staff and Student requests, Learning Space has been upgraded bringing plenty of changes. These will be rolled out over the next few weeks. Most noticeably:

  1. A consistent approach to the online learning experience
  2. An improved experience through more streamlined interface
  3. Better support for mobile devices
  4. Easier resource management

Thanks to all the staff input over the summer – We still really need your input and feedback, so please stay in contact. If you are a member of staff that has missed the changes so far, please get in contact and we can get you up to date.

Book training session

You can still watch the introductory info session video here.

If you have any further questions, Damien at etsupport@falmouth.ac.uk is always available.

Going Live!

The time approaches! The team have been beavering away implementing the new Learning Space and helping you to bring across content from the old to the new. Thank you for your co-operation and support over the summer months.

We can now announce some key dates for your diaries, so you’re aware what’s happening with the new site and the old and what to communicate to your students.

This week, those of you working on learn.falmouth.ac.uk will see some design changes which will go some way towards the look and feel of the final site.

Courses that begin on the 9th September will be automatically redirected to the new site.

On the 18th September the new site will go live and the old learning space will move to learningarchive.falmouth.ac.uk . You will still be able to access legacy course material, but this site should no longer be updated.

The week of 23rd September is launch week. The team will be visiting departments to chat to staff and students and answer any questions they may have on using the new site.

Once again, thank you for your co-operation and your enthusiasm about the ongoing development of our online learning environment, and please do contact us if you have any questions or comments.
