The on-line learning content

  • Stand-alone pieces of content-based learning resource

  • Used by individuals or groups as ‘just in time’ learning content

  • Used to form the basis of credit rated modules – individually or ‘mixed and matched’ to suit a particular learner or group

  • A range of ‘generic’ titles developed specifically for work based learners…

Ltw the re development
LtW –the re-development

  • Originally built (in 2001) as a pilot activity and has almost reached capacity

  • Built on technology that is becoming out-dated and we have little control of the site.

  • Architecture is fairly linear, the resources all accessed from the learning contract.

  • The look and feel is tired.

  • New platform - versatile, cutomisable, scalable web-based set of resources for WBL.
