The Humanities eLearning team is here to help you!

The elearning technologists (eLTs) and support officers here provide advice, guidance and demonstrations to academic staff on the opportunities for using technology in teaching, learning and assessment.

Furthermore, we provide support to academic staff on the use of Blackboard.

We're mainly based in the Ellen Wilkinson building, but at different times of the week there will be eLearning Technologists based in School buildings.

To get in touch with eLTs in your School, find their contact information below:
