Find out more about learning technologies in use at Loughborough in the ‘Tools for Teaching’ Section. These range from the Learn VLE, which offers a central hub for all online support, through to tools such as Turning Point or Box of Broadcasts which can enhance engagement in large face to-face classes.

The ‘How to’ section directs you to information on the 'Staff Hub' on Learn. The hub contains step-by-step handouts on the Learn VLE, information on assessment, teaching delivery, curriculum development and more.

Information to support you to enhance your learning and teaching practice

Within the Centre for Academic Practice there are several members of staff with roles focused on providing support around the use of a range of learning technologies. The primary system is Learn which serves as the online support ‘hub’ for every taught module.

Over recent years there has been an institutional Learn Minimum Presence Policy, which required every module to include certain categories of content. This has now been replaced by School-specific Learn policies.

In addition to Learn, staff have access to a range of other centrally supported learning technologies. More information is available in Tools for Teaching

These tools support you and your students at every stage of the teaching and learning cycle. Some require an initial investment of time but in other cases you can begin to use them almost immediately with little training. Such tools include Box of Broadcasts which gives you access to over a million TV and radio programmes to be used in teaching and research.

Support for all these tools is available from technology enhanced learning staff within the Centre for Academic Practice – face to face; online; and in scheduled CPD workshops.
