JISC Report on learner voice at South Essex College
With a sense of pride, I recently read through JISC’s case study on the learner voice as South Essex College (http://www.excellencegateway.org.uk/page.aspx?o=sec), it focuses on the use of Innovative technologies to engage the learner voice and their viewpoint of the section that I personally developed, C_Live:
“One of the key new sections of C_Space is C_Live, which has been designed specifically with the students’ social experience in mind. Within the contemporary design of the page, which was actually designed by a games development student, there is a personal blog, a Seek feed, a notes editor, and a library for hyperlinks. With the emergence of Web 2.0 technologies, Student Council members have started to publish content onto this new site.”
The article goes on to state: “Students have benefited greatly from this engagement, as through polls, forums, surveys, blogs and Twitter-type tools their voice is being heard by other students, staff and senior management.”
Although I’ve moved on to pastures new, my development C_Live is one of the highlights of my e-learning career.
