WebLearn is a web-based Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), which can be used to both support and enhance teaching and learning. WebLearn enables University members with very little web experience to set up a structured web site and provide an excellent resource for their students and so to focus their electronic teaching and learning activity. Once you have an Oxford username it's easy to login and start using WebLearn where you'll discover the many tools available in WebLearn ranging from on-line assessment and assignment submission (with optional plagiarism detection) to markbook tools to tutorial sign-up sheets to a resources area where documents and multimedia files can be stored, protected and searched. Departments wishing to make use of Weblearn can contact the WebLearn team for advice. University members may like to attend a training course or take a look at the Step-by-Step tool guides and the 'Least you need to know' guides all available within the Weblearn Guidance site.
Oxford University student help needed for usability study
We are currently redesigning our web site and need up to 5 Oxford University student volunteers to perform some user testing experiments for us. It will take no longer than 1 hour and you will receive a £10 Amazon voucher for your time. The testing will take place on Thursday 12th December during the afternoon. If you are interested in helping please contact IT Services Webmaster in the first instance.
IT Services' Online Advent Calendar
The University Strategic Plan says we should develop Oxford's online presence. We prefer online presents. In our Open Advent calendar this year IT Services will showcase the many lovely things we give users. A new door will become open each day until 24th December.
