SS Aughton Woods 2.5.11

*There’s a free event going on in Edinburgh on May 20th  – Open for Education (free tools, services and resources) – but Scotland is not as close as it should be (well to us in the Northwest anyway! :-)) and if you can’t make it to this event, you might like all the same to take advantage of this opportunity brought to us by Martin Hawksey [JISC RSC Scotland North and East ] who’s running a session that will be streamed live at 12.00 on 20th
App, App and Away: Using Google Forms for self-grading quizzes  and more.
            ‘In this session participants will learn how Google Forms can be used  
            for self-
grading quizzes and get a glimpse of how common tasks can be
           automated using Google Apps Script’ 
[Post Script from Martin – they will also be streaming the keynote and seminar 1:  more details on their Open for Education website.]

*I’ve flagged up the SOLSTICE / CLTR conference at Edge Hill [8th/9th June] before, but as it approaches it’s worth being reminded.  The combination of these two brings us:
day 1 with an elearning focus  (8th June) – with a really interesting line-up!
and day 2 with a focus on innovation and development in higher education learning and teaching practice (9th June)
More details
