The primary purpose of this site is to provide information, advice and guidance to Learning Providers in the FE & Skills sector in the use of what is generally called ‘technology.’ In particular software and sometimes hardware which has been designed to enhance the delivery of teaching, Learning & Assessment for the benefit of learners, stakeholders and the organisation. For example, high on the list is to signpost readers to the technology that is being successfully used in the sector by some providers and by-pass the kind of information, typically on-line, which is not only unclear, but often misleading, out of date and not suitable for the sector. The definition of an ePortfolio being a prime example.
