Moodle course of the month Congratulations to the Foundation Programmes team for creating the February 2014 Moodle courses of the month E2 & E3 Certificate in Skills for Working Life. Why do we like it? The team have worked really hard to make their course more engaging for their learners. They have created personalised and visual topics throughout ensuring all the coursework is covered but also including current events, quizzes, their own newsletter, forums and even including a section for social events the group have planned. As a result we have seen a significant rise in the usage statistics for these courses in the past few months particularly from the Gallows Lane learners.

App of the Month

What is Scan

Is a fast and user-friendly QR code reader and barcode scanner available for iPhone, iPad or iPod.

How does it work?

Simply open the app, point the camera at the code and Scan will automatically recognise it, if the code contains a website URL you will be taken to the site. If the code just contains text and you will immediately see it.
