Flexible Learning – what digital support do you need for your learning? 

Reading Time: < 1 minute

We need to hear from you to make sure the improvement enhances your student experience.  

How you can get involved  

We’re inviting all students to join our Digital Learning Environment workshops, so we can hear your ideas and suggestions. You don’t need to be a tech expert to join, you just need an interest in improving the learning experience for you and your peers. 

What is the Digital Learning Environment? 

The Digital Learning Environment includes web-based platforms that support teaching and learning, such as Blackboard Learn, and all other digital tools and applications that can be used to support teaching on your degree. 

Why are we considering changes? 

Our University is moving to blended and flexible learning at a greater scale. To ensure you get the additional benefits that this approach, which supplements and enhances your active on-campus learning, offers, our Digital Learning Environment has to meet your requirements.   

That’s why we want to hear your views on how we can improve our digital learning platforms. For instance: 

  • How can they better support you on your learning journey? 
  • How can they help you to work more collaboratively with your peers and teaching staff? 
  • How can we make them more inclusive and accessible? 
  • How can we make them easier to use? 
  • Is there any functionality we could improve or introduce? 

We are offering two workshops: 

  • Wednesday, 2 February, 10.30am – 12.00pm (online)  
  • Wednesday, 16 February, 2.00 – 3.30pm (online) 

Register your interest for the workshops (the sign-up form will take 2 minutes to complete). 

Please only sign up to one session, as they will cover the same topics. If you take part, you will receive a £15 Amazon voucher as a thank you! 

Next steps 

Your feedback will shape the recommendations and solution options for the future Digital Learning Environment, which we will share with you before publishing them more widely.   

If you have any questions about the Digital Learning Environment Review, or would like to get in touch by email, please contact us at FlexibleLearning@manchester.ac.uk. 

Thank you for getting involved!
