  • Updated product comparisons
    It’s a couple of years now since we had a flurry of activity around people sharing and discussing product comparisons (search on product features/comparisons if you want to look at the archives).

  • Digital Student Tracker: new and improved!
    I’m genuinely excited about the new question set for the Student Digital Experience Tracker. For the first pilot we cut things down to the bare essentials.

I started drafting […]

  • App and Resource Store – soft launch
    Posted on behalf of Justin Haylock, senior innovation developer. Just over a month ago I wrote to tell you about the upcoming “Store” that my team and I have had the pleasure of developing.  I outlined the way in which the Store will allow for better discovery, the ability to rate and review resources and ...

  • Being human #altc
    One of the key messagesI took away form the Donna Lanclos and Dave White keynote at ALT-C this year was that we need to remember that there is no such thing as “the university” as we are “the university”. When someone says “the university” won’t let us  do something, what they are actually saying is … Continue reading Being human #altc
