The Faculty of Arts at the University of Winchester has adopted Creative Education Solutions’ Asset software suite as its interactive learning activity platform of choice. Over the last three years, the Faculty has been developing blended learning strategies through the creation of a library of learning objects and the deployment of ILAs for formative assessment and guided study on a number of its modules. Dr Michael Jardine from the Department of English, Creative Writing and American Studies commented:
We have made considerable advances with a series of projects in recent years and accumulated significant capital in our available digital learning materials that form an important part of module delivery. To continue with this work and drive development forward, Asset was simply the best platform choice for its ease of use, level of sophistication and scalability. It will allow us to easily create, deploy and manage our expanding corpus of interactive learning activities used for content delivery on a range of our modules now. Our existing application could not cope with the levels of sophistication required for creating truly interactive and engaging materials. Its non-intuitive feel and difficult user interface for the management of ongoing activities meant that adoption and further development were being held back. Asset has solved all of this for us.
The Asset platform has already been rolled out and Creative Education Solutions will provide a related staff development programme and technical support during the coming academic year.
