1. Closure of ACDT

As of June 2008, the Academic Computing Development Team (ACDT) has been discontinued.

When the ACDT was originally set up there was a clear need for such a team as users were only just getting to grips with the possibilities of the web, and most tools and services had to be developed in-house and from scratch, but the times have changed; users now have access to a range of freely available web services, plus all the tools in WebLearn, and thus the need to develop unique e-learning tools had diminished.
