The RLO-CETL is concerned with:

Developing RLOs for Health Sciences

Evaluating the use of RLOs

Helping lecturers to develop and use RLOs

Developing tools and templates for RLO use

Integrating RLO use with other technologies eg mobile phones, white boards, videoconferencing

Research and advancing RLO pedagogy

reasons
Reasons

Pragmatic

  • Old VC equipment replaced and expensive (BT phone line rental)
  • Integration with e-learning initiatives eg RLOs, electronic whiteboards
  • Reduce time and costs travelling between centres
  • Capital funding from RLO-CETL

Pedagogical advantages

  • Extend learning communities
  • Synchronous communication
  • Access to specialists local and world wide for teaching and research
  • Widening practice opportunities
travel costs 2006 2007
Travel costs (2006-2007)
  • Last year we spent £157,000 on student travel. Across the centres this was split:
      • Boston - £86,000
      • Lincoln - £14,000
      • Derby - £19,000
      • Mansfield - £17,000
      • Nottingham - £7,000
      • Midwifery - £14,000
  • Staff costs on travel - £110,000
vc specification
VC Specification
  • 42 inch plasma screens with speakers
  • Portable – small/medium meeting rooms and medium/large classrooms
  • Link to existing AV (projectors) in classrooms
  • Join up to 8 sites in conference (multipoint)
  • Supports network and video equipment from multiple vendors
  • Simultaneous display of presenter and presentation material
  • Manages calls made on multiple protocols (IP, ISDN )
  • Complies with standards policies (JANET acceptable policy; UoN IS security policy)
  • Remote management system
  • Training package
stages in installation
Stages in Installation
  • procurement process - Tender & Shortlist 3 companies (delayed us by four months)
  • VC solution selected and contracts signed
  • Getting the Video Conference units to work correctly with existing AV Infrastructure i.e. Lecterns already installed in the Classrooms
  • Bandwidth issues and Quality of Service on those points, i.e. enough network bandwidth available to give good video & audio quality
  • Finding suitable rooms at each centre (QoS)
  • Registration with the University of Nottingham's Gatekeeper and JANET (to allow ISDN as well as IP)
  • Tandberg management software installed onto a server and get all the VC units registered with this software so that the MCU & VC units could make multi-sited calls.
  • Staff development for SoN AV Technicians

Evaluation Grantham(n=25)-Mansfield (n=21)
  • enjoyed the session although would have liked to be told about the videolink so I could be more prepared (G)
  • if we were prepared it would have been better as it took a while to relax (G)
  • I found it intimidating (G)
  • Found questioning stilted videoconferencing is good for lectures not for Q&A sessions (G)
  • very good session - it worked a lot better than expected (M)
  • I really enjoyed it, it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be (M)
  • I really enjoyed this method of learning and think it is really good, especially when the teacher is not present as we can still have a lesson Thankyou (M)
  • mansfield cohort too large, perhaps 2 sessions would be better than large one (M)
  • at first felt too shy to speak but got used to it by the end of the day (M)
  • I did not feel I could ask the questions I normally would ask(G)
evaluation lincoln dm nottingham
EvaluationLincoln-DM Nottingham
  • Video-conferencing proved effective – good to share learning with another centre
  • Good video-conference, nice to interact with Nottingham
  • Enjoyed the video-conferencing and news of other students from another centre
  • I found the video-conferencing to be a useful component. It was interesting to have opinions from another cohort
  • Good method of teaching and combining two sites
  • The room was far too small for 40 odd people in Nottingham. It was hot and scruffy and the sound at times was too quiet to hear. Very hard to concentrate at times and that made interest hard to keep
  • Personally feel that video conferencing is a waste of tutor resource
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Procurement and installation across sites – more time than planned
  • Early indications that students are positive about the use of VC in teaching
  • VC use across school is increasing for curriculum/research meetings

– familiarity with the technology

    • pioneers at each centre in using VC in T&L
    • support and strategic role out from project researcher
  • TLO – probably in a mental health practice setting
