We have received significant funding from the European Union to develop support materials for HN awards. One of the projects that received funding was the development of e-learning materials to support HNC Computing.
Caroline and I met with the writing team on Saturday to commence this work. The team will develop a digital (HTML) teaching pack for each mandatory unit within HNC Computing. Ted Hastings provided the training, having recently produced high quality materials for the new Library PDAs. Most of the writing team are practicing lecturers.
The materials will be supplied on CD-ROM to each centre and should be available by August. It will be in HTML format, suitable for hosting on a wide range of VLEs. This material will complement the additional exam questions which are also being funding by an ESF grant.
