1. I bumped into a few library people who mentioned a number of initiatives with other UK hei libraries services and moodle. Including the integration of moodle with current student loans data (LSE was mentioned). On reflection I’d question the value, is it simply turning moodle into a portal? I need to catch up on where we are with portal type developments. The discussion also suggested there was a wave of other search / discovery blocks are on the horizon.
2. Chat with efl included discussion of how might we develop staff capacity in efl for tech enhanced learning. Discussed the idea of a staff development programme. Or the potential use of a carpe diem model. I’d also be very keen to work with Tim as he’s the local e-learning person
