Academic IT - completed projects
WebLearn now contains the option of setting up assignments to be submitted and marked anonymously. This facility is being rolled out to support the increasing requirement for submission of coursework online. Any interested departments should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The facilities for the use of Replay Lecture Capture at the Exam Schools were improved with the addition of PCs and AV equipment to one large and one small teaching room. Guidance for those wishing to improve their own facilities for lecture capture has been updated and is available on the Replay Lecture Capture web page.
During Michaelmas Term 2016, a consultation exercise was run to support the implementation of the Digital Education Strategy. Departments and faculties were asked to consider current and future use of technology for teaching and learning within their subject area, to identify important areas for resourcing from the perspective of academic staff and students. Priorities for digital education included the need for a review of the VLE and improved support for computer based exams (updates on these projects are included on the Academic IT projects page). These and other findings will help to set priorities for future Academic IT projects, support services, and clarify and agree the resources needed to develop digital education at Oxford.
A new version of WebLearn (version 11) became available to staff and students returning in Michaelmas term 2016. The new version included the latest available software fixes and enhancements, including improved usability on mobile devices, and better tools to support teaching and learning.
