Scaling up online Learning worked with the UK academic community to understand the barriers stopping institutions from adopting more online learning and find the best solutions to address those problems. This project was focussed on supporting institutions.

Scaling up online learning guides  – a series of guides to help your staff understand the decisions they need to make and the processes involved around scaling up online learning at an organisational level

  • Scaling up online learning provides a strategic view of different models and the implications of implementing online learning at an institutional level
  • Curriculum design and support for online learning helps you make decisions around curriculum design and determine support needs when scaling up online learning
  • Technology and tools for online learning provides guidance, resources and case studies around the use of technology to support online courses and distance learning programmes.
