  • The research study on "learner experiences of e-learning" has been awarded to a group from Glasgow Caledonian University and the Open Learning Partnership.

  • A report by Dr Liz Masterman on the analysis of the pre-training questionnaires from the LAMS evaluation is now available.
  • Dr Stuart Lee and Dr Liz Masterman have begun a project to evaluate the use of tools that support the designing for learning process, such as mind-mapping software, interactive whiteboards, and word templates.
