The examples are organised according to the seven challenges we identified for institutions. Each challenge now has its own page with key ideas and findings, and with links to resources and exemplars.

There are also new versions of our ‘Digital learners are different’ posters, revised after consultation to be more useful for starting conversations across both HE and FE sectors. The text reflects the diversity of experiences and attitudes students bring to their use of digital technology in learning. The ‘Enhancing the digital learning experience’ postcards have had a make-over too. All of these materials can be accessed for download and reuse from the outcomes page.

Finally – as if that wasn’t enough – today sees the launch at DigiFest of a brand-new Jisc Guide, Enhancing the student digital experience: a strategic approach. You’ll find this to be a handy summary of the work on this site including snapshots of many of the exemplars. Enjoy!
