Alan hides his disappointment that there’s no tiara.

Our department’s implementation and development of an electronic porfolio and VLE has received an Innovation in Technology Award at the 2011 JISC, ITEC Awards.

The Efolio includes a social network, forums and blog that can be used to showcase student’s work and function as a virtual classroom.  The judges were particularly impressed with the impact the project had on staff, students and teaching resources.

“I think this award recognises the hard work that everyone has put into the Mahara e-portfolio project.

The major developments that are currently taking place outside education, developments in new media applications and web-based technologies for example, means that we are creating a learning environment that compliments the practice-based teaching and learning that takes place in the classroom.”
