Faculty- or self-supported tools

Here we recommend tools for flexible learning that are supported within faculties or where self-support is required.

These tools / resources are not supported by the University’s Staff Service Centre but may be supported within your faculty or by Libraries and Learning Services. If you think something should be added to the list, please let us know by sending us feedback via the link below.

The tools are clustered around their potential to support the six learning types, as described by Diana Laurillard.
