Homepage of the Oxford Online Programme in Sleep MedicineRecent developments include:

  • Students on the Oxford Online Programme in Sleep Medicine (MSc/Dip/CPD) study part-time around other commitments. To enable to them to make the most of what little time they have for study, the Sleep Medicine WebLearn site automatically surfaces the current week's learning materials on students' personalised homepage.
  • A unique personalised ‘portal’ for Biomedical Sciences - this won an OxTALENT award – including a more user-friendly face for My Workspace Resources, called “My Stuff”. Context-sensitive menus and drag and drop file upload are designed to encourage students to make better use of this facility within WebLearn.

Sakai Homepage Generator


Recognising that not everyone wants to have to edit HTML to create their site's homepage, we developed the Sakai Homepage Generator which enabled anyone, regardless of their technical skills, to create an appealing homepage from a folder structure in their site's Resources.
