Published 20 Nov, 2006
JISC has announced the successful bids under the first round of funding of its capital programme. Representing an investment of nearly £5.5m, the 27 projects are being funded under the e-learning, e-infrastructure and repositories and preservation strands of the programme.

Among the 13 projects funded in the e-learning strand will be those linking with HEFCE’s Lifelong Learning Networks which are providing regional progression pathways between further education colleges and higher education institutions as a means of widening participation. With a key focus of the e-learning strand being the exploration of technology’s potential to enhance learning and teaching, another focus for a number of the funded projects will be how ICT can enhance practice-based learning, particularly in health, nursing and medicine.
