We manage MSD’s presence on the University’s VLE
WebLearn, the University’s virtual learning environment (VLE) is run centrally by the WebLearn team at IT Services (ITS). MSDLT work very closely with ITS and are your first point of call for help in the Medical Sciences Division, from getting started with WebLearn to making use of its more powerful features such as signing up for tutorials, peer marking and online surveys.
Recent developments include developing a unique personalised ‘portal’ for Biomedical Sciences - this recently 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.
MSTC Foyer Display Screen
With our expertise in WebLearn and the room booking system, Rapla, we have been able to create a custom foyer display screen for the MSTC to guide students and visitors, and to make them aware of important announcements.
