Learning Central is the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). It is used extensively for the delivery of course content, and is an ideal way to make your teaching materials accessible. Ask to be added as an instructor / teacher to be able to add content yourself, or ask lecturers to do this on your behalf. Your materials can easily be accessed by the whole class on or off campus.
Learning Central offers:
- The facility to share materials such as documents, slides, images, video etc. easily. Access to any resource uploaded to Learning Central is limited to students enrolled on an individual module.
- More advanced options such as online assessment through web-based quizzes, tests and surveys which enable you to monitor students’ understanding.
Detailed help for Learning Central is available at Blackboard Help.
In the next section we will look at using the Resource Hub of the Information Literacy Resource Bank.
