TELT

Blogs, wikis and forums were not designed as educational tools, but they can be very useful in a teaching and learning context for supporting dialogue between students, providing a space for collaboration and chronicling student reflections. But which is most suitable to your needs, in your course?

The TELT Evaluation Framework, developed in 2009 through to 2011, is designed to undergo iterative cyclical refinement and ongoing development, based on the results of the sub-layer evaluations themselves and an ever-changing staff, student and application landscape in which it is applied.

eLearning or (TELT) Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching is the suite of learning technologies and applications that support learning and teaching at UNSW. The TELT platform is gradually being developed and reviewed to assess its suitability for the learning and teaching needs of the University.

Moodle Training and Support

You can use blocks to customise the look and functionality of your course home page. Think of them as shortcuts to critical parts of your course. 

Getting started  

There are several kinds of blocks in Moodle.

Submitting an expression of interest does not guarantee a place in a pilot program. Similarly, anyone who participates in a pilot program does so on the understanding that the application is under evaluation against the university evaluation framework for acceptance into the TELT platform.

The virtual medical classroom has come alive with the launch of Smart Sparrow, adaptive e-learning technology developed at UNSW that takes the patient - and the teacher - to the student.

Adaptive eLearning Platform

The UNSWTV media management portal has been placed in read-only mode and has been replaced by a new service called theBox.

Content Migration

The Framework itself incorporates continual effectiveness re-assessment of the evaluation processes: how well they identify suitable technology applications and tools for inclusion in the platform, and to what extent they improve technology supported learning and teaching. Thus, the Evaluation is conducted over the entire life-cycle of the technologies, delineated across three stages:

Stage 1: An initial vendor assessment: to determine the suitability, stability and viability of the prospective vendors/open-source solutions.
