The LSC has announced that a further £2.5 million capital funding will be available for MoLeNET 3. For those not familiar with MoLeNET it stands for ‘Mobile Learning Network‘ and is a scheme administered by the LSN (Learning and Skills Network) to encourage the use of mobile technology for teaching and learning in the FE sector.
As a team we held a collaborative event at Preston College last week. We had 31 delegates from learning providers across the North West of England and were delighted to welcome Dr Geoff Foot, the MoLeNET project manager. Among the delegates were some college who had already had successful phase 1 or 2 bids and they shared their experiences. It was clear that there is a considerable amount of work involved in running a project and the actual cost is over and above the 20% paid in advance to LSN.
As the deadline approaches, we are aware that there are colleges who would still like more information before making any decisions, so we have organised a further online event on Tuesday 1 September at 12.30. We’ll be using Adobe connect and again Geoff Foot has agreed to be online to answer questions from learning providers.
