21 new projects in the e-Learning Programme will investigate regional issues in the areas of widening participation and learner progression.

The Distributed e-learning regional pilot projects are now up and running. They are investigating how e-learning can be used across a number of institutions to address regional issues around widening participation and learner progression. The 21 projects involve a wide range of partners including universities, FE colleges, New Technology Institutes, schools and local education authorities, and employers. Many are exploring how e-portfolios and online personal development planning systems can be used to support learners during a foundation degree or prior to and during the transition to higher education, or from higher education to the workplace. Others are providing an online support environment for students based away from the main university site, or sharing learning materials among the partners to increase the range of opportunities available to learners. Work is also taking place on identifying and communicating progression routes within a region.

Further information on all the projects is available from the JISC website at:
