About: I'm the E-Learning Systems Team Manager in IT Services at Loughborough University.

Our team is responsible for running and hosting many of the E-Learning (and related) systems at the University, including our VLE (now in its 11th year, and running on Moodle), e-assessment system (QuestionMark Perception), OMR-based assessment system, and many other tools and resources developed locally (many of which one or more of us have been involved in developing).

These include RAPID, DART, HELM, BestMaths, Easimap, MathCentre, MathTutor and others that don't spring instantly to mind. Google them for more info!

We also work with the wider E-Learning team as part of the E-Learning Operations Group, to develop and implement new ideas.

We've also been involved with work for the Engineering CETL, Maths CETL and the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre, amongst others.

Catherine Ogilvie - Hi Catherine, Very interesting presentation - as I mentioned during the session, you seem to have gone through an almost identical process to us at Loughborough. Spookily enough we've also integrated Turnitin and Perception. Even your purple is similar to our "African Violet":- http://learn.lboro.ac.uk/ Regards, Rich

Jocasta Williams - Hi Jo, Interesting presentation this morning (loved the jelly baby story). Like the idea of tutors recording "postscripts" to lectures - ours sometimes do this with a discussion board post. A short video could purvey so much more! I didn't get chance to catch you at the end so will try and catch up with you soon. Rich
