About: The Education Development team at Bradford now includes our learning technologists and this coming year we will be reviewing the University approach to the use of technology to support student learning. This will include a review of the VLE (currently Blackboard). We would like to talk to other institutions involved in similar contemplations about the future.
The groupwork resouce we developed through LearnHigher (and continuing to develop with Leeds) is up for 2 prizes at ALT-C so delighted to talk at great length to anyone about this:
We are also producing a new version of the Interviewer software which gives you a mock job/careers interview through your pc. And we have a prototype viva simulation using the same technology.

Hi Peter,
Be great to meet up with you at some point - I'm interested in hearing more about 'Interviewer' as our Careers Service are keen to try it.

Hi Peter, we have just kicked off a VLE review. Happy as ever to share thoughts.

Guess what, we are just starting our review of the VLE this month, with a March date for the review to be complete and action to be taken!
