This page provides access to examples of academic good practice in X-stream modules (originally via the Leeds Met annual Technology Enhanced Learning competition 2008-2010). Watch the videos to see (and hear) how your academic colleagues created their modules and included simple yet innovative tools and features that enhanced the learning of their students. 

The Showcase 2010

The Technology Enhanced Learning Showcase displays the winning modules from the 2010 competition “TEL Us More”.

Now in its third year, the technology-enhanced learning competition has produced yet more interesting and different ways that colleagues have used X-stream to incorporate features that have enhanced the learning of their students.

Each video clip shows a particular area (or golden nugget) of good practice along with some context and background to how or why it was introduced. We hope you will find the videos interesting and may suggest to you some useful new ideas for your modules. http://www.leedsmet.ac.uk/tel/TELShowcase2010/index.html

X-stream - Guides and Information - For Staff (UNAPPROVED!) X-stream - Guides and Information - For Staff - ALL FEEDBACK ARE WELCOME!  Colin Mitchell An expanding/collapsing menu system that pulls all of the existing Guides to the various bits of X-stream from sources across the University together alongside the many guides we developed ourselves in Carnegie. Many guides are repeated in the menu system because we know our users want to browse guides from different viewpoints e.g. "I want to watch a video about a feature", "I want to read about a feature", "I only know the name of the feature and want to know more", "I only know what I want to do and have no idea where to begin!" Anyway ALL FEEDBACK ARE WELCOME!
