Outcomes from our 2003 - 2007 research into the e-learning experiences of students [via the UK web archive] have had an enduring influence on organisational and learning practices across the higher education, further education and skills sectors.
Through our learner experience work, we sought to understand better what students expect from the learning platforms and tools provided by universities and colleges, and how these integrate with their own personal technologies.
Key outputs from this theme of work, which involved over 200 learners and more than 3000 survey respondents, include our responding to learners resource pack and the student experiences of technology campaign.
The digital student experience remains a key aspect of our ongoing work. Students are now playing an active role in the development of their learning and working in partnership with staff to affect institutional change through our change agents’ network as well as proposing their own technology solutions in the Summer of Student Innovation initiative. And our recent learner voices in further education video clips turn the spotlight on the experiences of students in further education and skills.
