Training and events

In addition to self-support materials there are a number of training sessions and events throughout the year. This training is aimed at instructors, course organisers and admin staff. The Learn Service Team will also provide consultancy and workshops on request where appropriate.

Training

A number of centrally provided training sessions are organised by the IS Digital Skills and Training teams and more information is available from their website. These training sessions are generally introduction courses to give an overview of Learn and its features to raise awareness of how the system operates and where to find additional support for developing courses. The courses are aimed at staff members who have editing privileges for courses.

Due to the varying nature of courses across schools we do not offer any centralised training to students as most courses offer an overview of how to use the system during Welcome Week.

Learning Technology courses delivered via IS Digital Skills and Training

  • Introduction to Learn
  • Using Grade Centre in Learn
  • Managing Course Copy and Migration in Learn

As part of the Learn Foundations project, we are also developing new training for Learn which might be of interest.

Consultancy and workshops

We provide consultancy services if you would like to investigate a particular approach within Learn or if you are keen to improve how your courses are represented within the VLE. Our teams are often invited to attend school-based away days to help provide support and advice on Learn and other learning technologies. If you have a group of people that need to be trained on a particular area of Learn course management, we are happy to deliver bespoke training and workshops based on your needs and approaches.

If you are interested in Learn consultancy, or would like to arrange a future workshop for a group of people, please contact the IS Helpline with a detailed request.

Upcoming events

Learn courses are currently being reviewed and new courses will be available shortly.
