Teaching and learning

Part of our remit at IT Services is to help academics, students and staff get the most from technology for learning and teaching. Our work here ranges from facilitating the use of IT for lectures to creating digital teaching resources or helping Oxford’s world-class academics communicate and broadcast their work.

We design, organise and teach IT literacy courses, to help staff and students make the most of the resources at their disposal. We develop, support and maintain WebLearn, the University’s virtual learning environment (VLE). We also support Turnitin, the University plagiarism awareness service.

Public engagement and impact are increasingly important to many researchers and lecturers in the University. We advise academics on the use of new technology for outreach, engagement and research. We offer services to record and publish lectures, seminars and events through the Educational Media Services. We help develop collections of reusable and open educational materials. These range from the highly successful Oxford podcast site on iTunes U – currently over 23 million downloads – to Woruldhord, an online collection of free educational resources for teaching and study of Old English and the Anglo-Saxons.

To promote innovative use of learning technologies, we provide case studies and organise events, workshops and conferences relating to current projects.
