This broadly based, multi-strand programme covered themes ranging from curriculum design and delivery to lifelong learning and e-portfolios; from learning environments and course data to open education resources; and from digital literacies to assessment and feedback.
Communicating and sharing the outcomes from this wide-ranging body of work has been a key aim of the programme.
For a broad, institutionally based audience, we produced a range of learning and teaching guides with links to the programme: learning in a digital age, emerging practice in a digital age, effective assessment in a digital age, effective practice in a digital age and effective practice with e-portfolios.
Knowledge and resources from our e-learning programme have been shared with the sector. These include a guide to designing learning, teaching and assessment with Blackboard Collaborate and a toolkit of guidance and other materials produced by individual projects in the programme. In addition, our podcast provides expert discussion of many key topics addressed by the programme.
With funding from the e-learning embedding benefits programme, we also ensured that proven models of technology-enhanced learning and teaching can be embedded in other higher and further education institutions and skills providers whilst at the same time supporting developments in technical infrastructure.
Our work has brought us into partnerships with other key agencies. Through the changing learning landscape initiative (accessed via the UK Web Archive), we worked in collaboration with the Association for Learning Technology (ALT), the National Union of Students (NUS) and the Leadership Foundation.

Take a look also at our e-learning capital programme which investigated the diverse benefits of technology in lifelong learning, including streamlined administrative systems and personal learning technologies such as e-portfolios. The programme included the CAMEL tangible benefits of e-learning impact study.
Our ongoing investigations into technology-enhanced learning and teaching build on the work of this programme.
For example, our transforming the digital student experience project evolved from the changing the learning landscape initiative and our digital student project has been informed by the 2010 supporting learners in a digital age (SLiDA) study [via the UK Web Archive]. In addition, students increasingly play an active role in embedding learning technologies in the curriculum, a role promoted by the e-learning programme.
