The bulk of the £81 million will be spent over three years on enhancing the network infrastructure (SuperJANET 5) and digitising key resources for the academic community.
Three calls in April 2006, September 2006 and April 2007 include calls for e-learning projects (allocated £11.36 million) to achieve the following:
- pilot new e-learning technologies to support lifelong learners, including support for HE courses in FE, widening participation, work-based learning, flexible delivery and personalised learning experiences.
- build capacity, knowledge and skills in the use of e-learning to support lifelong learning through institutional and collaborative cross sector projects; work with subject communities, and knowledge exchange activities.
- develop, pilot and implement technical models that support the flexible, affordable and pedagogically diverse implementation of e-learning.
- provide guidance to practitioners, institutions and subject communities on the use of e-learning, in partnership with the Higher Education Academy.
- gain knowledge to inform future JISC e-learning developments, through engagement with the ICT industry and through a collaborative e-learning research programme.
The Capital work is being integrated with the core e-Learning Programme in a number of themed areas.
