Project Objectives

To provide students with an advanced learning aide to more efficiently develop a deeper understanding of the theoretical and practical educational materials which form a central element to their learning.

Key deliverables expected and timelines for completion

Simulated laboratory experiences for students, based on the specific input of the teachers concerned. In addition, the new elements which are different from our previous project will be included, such as the interactive quizzes bank and the resource center. The project will be completed by June 2014.

Arrangements for evaluation of project deliverables/outcomes

Student surveys and focus-group interviews will measure the impact and outcomes of the eLearning upgrade. The projects impact will be examined to assess the extent which the project carries forward innovative, cutting edge developments in teaching and learning; and the breadth and sustainability of the project’s impact on teaching and learning activities.

Means for disseminating project deliverables/outcomes

Students can log on to access the specialized online material which can be accessed on-demand prior to attending the classroom or laboratory practical sessions. Thus, the students will have the best possible advantage leading into the class and also this allows for a more efficient and resourceful use of laboratory time for both the students and teachers.
