University Services to help you
- Higher Education Development Centre (HEDC)
In particular have a look at their Educational Technology and Workshops pages.
- Information Technology Services (ITS)
The Digital Tools page links to tools based on activity type and timing, while the A to Z listing page provides links to all of ITS services. Lots of questions are answered on the Frequently Asked Questions page. Also keep up with the eLearning News and eLearning Blog from ITS.
The library resources and help for eLearning is HUGE! Each campus has their own library (Dunedin, Wellington, Christchurch) and each division has a library (Health Sciences). The Health Sciences Library also has a blog with “information about resources, services, events and other interesting stuff!” The Health Sciences Librarians have specific interest areas (eLearning, medicine, pharmacy, bioethics, dentistry, physiotherapy ) and are keen to help you help your students learn.
