The E-Learning Practitioners Group is an online group where you can join together with others from around QMUL to discover more about using technology in teaching. It has been set up in QMplus Hub and anyone with an account on QMplus can join.
The E-Learning Unit use the group to provide updates on QMUL e-learning services and to provide other information of use to the QMUL e-learning community. Although we oversee the group, it is a space where users from across the faculties can join in to ask questions, help each other out and generally share their experiences. It is a publicly visible group which means that you can see what is going on without joining. You have to join to participate though and we’d like as many people to do that as possible.
