This week

  • Liaised with Lisa re VLE programme.
  • Contributed to ‘Community Conference Call’
  • Attended OU/ Becta meeting re Moodle with Peter and Scott

Issues

  • Having monitored the JISC VLE List, the lack of clarity as to whether schools want VLEs and whether the staff have the time to get trained up to use them.
  • Moodle not on Becta’s approved Learning Platform list: reason for list…to ensure school consortia purchasing sytems do not come up against EU bidding/ procurement issues. Problem still is that many agencies purchasing systems on behalf of schools/ LEAs etc may ignore Moodle.
  • Role of NAA Minerva system for vocational achievement data and links with HE requirement for applications, vocational education credits, potfolios etc.  Meeting set up with peter and Rob (ePortfolio developments)

Next week

  • presentation assessment SIG, Southampton
