About


The E-Learning Development Team offers guidance to staff in the use of a wide variety of technologies, ranging from video capture, multimedia and lecture recording, to e-assessment tools.  A common starting point for most staff in developing their e-learning provision for learners is through the use of Yorkshare, the University’s centrally supported VLE.

About the ELDT

TEL support at the University of York is provided by the E-Learning Development Team within the Academic Support Office. We offer individuals and Departments support in the design, delivery and evaluation of learning technology interventions at the activity, module and programme level. Working from a pedagogy-first approach, drawing upon our own research and evidence from the sector, we help you to find the right tool and approach to meet your learning objectives. We provide guidance on how to use the University’s centrally-supported virtual learning environment Yorkshare, and advise on a wide range of learning technologies, including use of Google Sites for portfolios, multimedia and video, lecture recording, technology-supported assessment, in-class technologies and collaboration out of class.
