Apart from the guidance we offer on the Learning Site for each qualification, we offer a number of additional support sites to help staff get the most out of our qualifications. Contact the office if you would like access to any of these. The logos link to the sites.
We run a Moodle site which offers suggestions for how to deliver courses as well as suggested "flavours" or combinations of units for the ITQ to give students a coherent focus, such as support, digital imaging or games design for example. The site also has mock exams to try out and discussion forums for you to share ideas and best practice with other teachers.
We run a Mahara ePortfolio site for discussion and CPD purposes. The site links to the Moodle site so can be used for linking courses to portfolio topics for example. The site can be used to track and store your CPD and can be published externally in a controlled way. It is also used as a reference site should you wish to use a similar system with your own students.
In addition to the above site, we also run a test server which can be used to run test software, particular for collaborative work. It has, for example, an online survey tool, a Project Management system, a podcast generator, a web based glossary and a planning tool. All of these are free to use and the Project management site also has pre-set and usable email accounts associated with it. Some of these resources will be described in videos on the video server site.
