These upgrades have caught many people on the hop. Some have found the change disconcerting. Please accept apologies for the discomfort and any glitches. We will be seeking feedback and evaluating Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) developments formally across the University throughout this semester and reporting through TEL Steering Group to AESC and Faculties. Please send any comments and feedback on these updates and any other ideas and suggestions for TEL improvement to me, your PLSEs, PLQs, DMELDs or ADSEs

You can contact us through Your Development for Technology Enhanced Learning.
