Installing a learning platform or VLE is as much about changing culture and processes as it is about new technology. This course will help Secondary senior leaders get more value from their learning platform, by understanding how it can benefit their school and by giving them time to successfully implement it.

The programme was built around the concept of networks of Local Advisers consulting and negotiating a training package tailored to the needs of all or part of a school staff. These LEA Adviser teams provide support for schools and teachers and are equipped with a range of text and audio-visual resources to assist them. Teachers on the Programme undertook their own needs assessment and prioritise various professional tasks and activities to help meet them. The programme materials and support structures facilitated the completion of their selected tasks. The materials consisted of booklets, textbooks, a resource-led web site and subject/phase-based CD-ROMs of examples of good classroom practices using ICT. The support structures include contact with LEA Advisors, face-to-face and by e-mail, and access to a series of moderated local and national electronic conferences. The materials comprise both generic and subject specific content covering Primary and 16 Secondary subjects and country versions where required, including teacher packs in Welsh.
This course is for students who are about to start on the first module of the Professional Certificate in Management: B628/BZX628 Managing and Managing People. This short course is an introduction to reflection for learning in professional settings.
When used properly, wikis are powerful tools that enable sharing of information and knowledge. This Secondary course explores how they can be used in the classroom to improve teaching and learning and enable collaboration on group projects. You will either use a wiki on your school’s learning platform or, if this is not available to you, we will explain how to sign up to use one of the free online wiki services.
This course explores how to use wikis to support collaborative learning projects in Secondary schools. It is a basic introduction to wikis. If you would like to understand more about, and how to add images, upload video and other media, our Learning together: developing wikis (V01s) course will be more suitable.

This open course will guide participants through the discovery, use and reuse of open educational resources (OER) for teaching purposes in all sectors of education. Together we will explore approaches to selecting and using materials that have been created by others, unpack the process of adaptation and discuss sharing and networking. This course will be highly attractive to both those who want to start using OER in their teaching and those who are already users but who are looking for an opportunity to create and share their own teaching resources for teaching.
This material is taken from a discontinued Open University course. It is intended for re-purposing and re-use by educators rather than for use directly by learners. Learning outcomes appropriate to the original course may be provided within the material, but it is intended that educators will construct new learning outcomes appropriate to the re-use they make of this material.
This course helps participants understand how they can use MOOCs for learning, and how they can grow professionally studying a MOOC, whether or not they are already in employment. The course requires 12 hours of study time.
