E-learning, Moodle, student e-mails and the City College intranet
What is e-learning?
E-learning is a term used to describe how we use technology to support students with their learning whilst they study at City College. The use of technology is an important part of curriculum delivery across all our subject areas, with many aspects of our award winning utilisation regarded as exemplars of good practice by organisations such as Ofsted and JISC.
How does it help our students?
Our students have access to a wide range of resources that support their studies, such as:
- Moodle (moodle.ccb.ac.uk) - our award winning online Virtual Learning Environment that provides access to course related resources, information, learning materials and activities at anytime and from anywhere with an internet connection. Ii will also act as your access point to a range of online tools and college support services.
* Almost 90% of over 3,000 learners surveyed in 2013 said that Moodle helped their learning.
- Their own college e-mail account and online file storage space.
- A personalised online learning plan via our bespoke e-ilp system.
- Online books, journals, encyclopaedias and newspapers.
- Wi-fi available across the majority of campus.
- Our own internal media streaming service.
- A wide range of software and classrooms equipped with computers, projectors and Smart boards.
- Plus much more....
We pride ourselves on providing a modern, innovative and supportive learning environment for our students. For example, at the moment we are running a number of pilot schemes across the college to investigate how we can best facilitate the use of mobile devices such as Android tablets, iPads and Smartphones to support our teaching and learning.
