Learning Technologies Group

During 2001 the Learning Technologies Group was formed bringing together the Academic Computing Development Team (formerly the HCDT), Project ASTER, OxTALENT, and during Michaelmas term the Centre for Humanities Computing. The LTG is multi-disciplinary covering all divisions within the University. Its aim is to promote, enhance, and the develop the use of IT in teaching and research within Oxford. A widening of the group's remit and impact on the other divisions is already apparent in training, and in the range of projects submitted to the Academic Computing Development Team.

Total training figures for Michaelmas term have shown a considerable increase compared to previous years. Numbers attending the courses have risen from 560 (2000) to 1075 (2001). This has been mainly due to the offering of generic EndNote courses applicable to all subjects (with a special course offered for Zoology graduates), and a series of Digital Video workshops. Hilary term looks to continue this trend and nearly all the courses taught in Hilary and Trinity (2002) will be applicable to all subjects. Moreover during Hilary term subject specific courses are being offered to the following departments:
  • Economics
  • Education Studies
  • Integrated Biology, Neurobiology and Forestry
  • Materials
  • Modern History
  • Oriental Studies
  • Politics/IR Graduates
  • Slavonic Studies
  • Zoology and Plant Sciences
