Support material for the Blog unit

I just commissioned support material for the new Blog unit. There will be sample assessments and learning material to support the unit.

I'm not sure about dates yet but I expect the assessments to be available for September and the teaching material to be available around October.

We're taking an unusual approach to the development of learning material. In the spirit of the new Social Software unit that we're working on, we're planning on producing the material collaboratively using a wiki. We'll use WikiBooks to develop and distribute it. So we're hoping that lots of people will contribute (but SQA will pay someone to develop most of the material). More information will follow.

  1. I am presently managing a project to support innovative e-elarning project in England in adult and community learning. We are about to launch a pilot to use blogs in teaching and learning within the sector
    I am extremely intereted in the weblog qualification developed in scotland and feel it may be of interest to the ACL pilot projects
    Would it be possible for a centre to register as an examiner for this qulification

  2. It should be no problem at all Susan. SQA has lots of centres in England and abroad. Please contact Angela (angela.lees@sqa.org.uk) for more information.

    I would be interested in hearing about susan's e-learning project incorporating the weblog qualification. I would be interested in going down this route also.
