Better Blended Learning!

Today, we finally launched the much anticipated support community for our colleagues in GSBS. It’s called “GSBS Better Blended Learning!” and will be a source of resources which will support you in delivering blended learning.

The main focus will be on the use of our VLE – GCULearn – but we will also be including information about external resources. For example, after our recent Five Days of Twitter event, we’ll be including demonstrations and instructions on how to embed Twitter into GCULearn. In fact, a bit like this!


If the community hasn’t already shown up in the My Communities box on the front page when you log in to GCULearn, don’t worry;  I’ll be enabling self-enrolment shortly and sending out the instruction on how to get on by self-service.

Some of the content will be produced by Elizabeth and I, as the Schools’ learning technologists, but we also hope to showcase contributions from you, the academic staff. The content which you’ll find today will grow over the coming days, weeks and months. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a more experienced user, we hope you’ll find something of interest. We look forward to your participation…
