Faculty of English: English Literature Timeline

This project was funded through the Teaching & Learning Innovation Fund, and sought to develop a programme of English literature classes to address transition from school to University, and research skills.  The end result is an interactive online timeline of relevant information about authors that students study.  Information is uploaded by students themselves and links reading lists to contextual information.



Moodle Good Practice Guide

The Moodle team have developed a good practice guide, which has tips to help you make the most of your Moodle site.  The team also offer training courses for University staff; these are short (1.5-3 hours) hands-on courses on a regular basis.  Introductory courses are held weekly, with more advanced courses on a monthly basis.
