1.1. Looking for a course?
We provide learning technology courses to members of the University. Topics cover all aspects of information technology and its use in education. Our departmental and faculty inductions and seminars are tailored towards the needs of each discipline.
You can browse the IT Learning Programme course schedule either through our A-Z listing, or using the list of Upcoming courses. Our course calendar is available to download as a PDF document.
Our courses run throughout the academic year. Most courses consist of a series of short talks with demonstrations, followed by practical exercises.
LTG organise and run events which are open to members of the University and external guests. The events we run:

Open access publishing enables anyone, anywhere in the world to read the fruits of academic research absolutely free of charge. It’s an exciting development that has been around for some years in science and medicine — and indeed many academics in all disciplines self-publish openly on the Web too. However, with the introduction of the RCUK’s policy on 1st April open access now applies across the board to research funded by the Councils, and over the past few months Oxford has been conducting an awareness-raising programme which includes a dedicated OAO website.
For our projects collecting First World War memorabilia across Europe we combine online crowdsourcing with ‘Roadshow’
events to reach and engage a wide audience. This session will introduce the Oxford Community Collection Model and show
how it has been used for projects such as The Great War Archive and Europeana 1914-1918.
As part of a recent JISC Transformations project, the libraries at Oxford University have been creating an on-line library
induction which can be accessed through smart phones and tablet computers. This induction is designed to answer common questions
posed by undergraduate freshers who often find the Oxford library system confusing and difficult. In this talk we will discuss the
purpose of the induction and how it was designed and developed. This talk may be of interest to anybody wishing to use mobile t
echnology to help teach or assist students.
In this session Simon Clark will outline his experience of running the Oxford access-oriented YouTube channel ‘SimonOxfPhys’,
which has received over 150,000 views and almost 1,000 subscribers. This experience has suggested a strategy, complementary to
current approaches, that could reveal Oxford to potential students through the use of on-line video blogs (vlogs). This comparatively
nascent format would make Oxford stand apart from other halls of learning for the web 2.0 generation, and continue its history of innovation
We will be discussing our developing project for an open educational resource for the urban design modules at Oxford Brookes University.
We have been working on creating a very collaborative and open environment on the web, highly dynamic and integrated to social networks which
can facilitate learning and teaching at Brookes at an initial stage and then progress to a global audience. The project uses diy webdesign and encourages
students and staff participation by making academic content public.
The Digital.Humanities@Oxford Summer School (DHOXSS) is an annual training event taking place this year on 8 – 12 July 2013 at the University of Oxford for researchers, project managers, research assistants, and students of Digital Humanities. DHOXSS delegates are introduced to a range of topics including the creation, management, analysis, modelling, visualization, or publication of digital data for the humanities. Each delegate follows one of our 5-day workshops and supplements this with guest lectures by experts in their fields. There are a limited number of bursaries available for University of Oxford DPhils and Early-Career Researchers.
There are a variety of evening events including a peer-reviewed poster session to give delegates a chance to demonstrate their work to the other delegates and speakers. The Thursday evening sees an elegant drinks reception and three-course banquet at the historic Queen’s College Oxford.
DHOXSS is a collaboration for Digital.Humanities@Oxford between the University of Oxford’s IT Services, the Oxford e-Research Centre (OeRC), the Bodleian Libraries, and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities.
