IT news in brief

December 17, 1999

The Focus website is a new online guide to teaching techniques and web-based learning tools. It provides lecturers and teachers with a one-stop solution to producing learning materials for the web. The site has been developed by a six-member consortium: the universities of Ports-mouth, North London, Southampton, Loughborough, Glasgow and Sheffield College.

Case studies match the tools to specific teaching techniques.

The project is funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England through the Teaching and Learning Technology Programme.
