A HEFCE/JISC/HEA project that builds on previous work to provide online learning materials to support numeracy across a wide range of subject areas in FE and HE. It is proposed to repurpose online numeracy resources built under the NuMBerS project (http://web.anglia.ac.uk/numbers) and use these as the basis of an innovative pilot site where users can access materials, rate their use and effectiveness, and have the option to upload materials and case studies.
The project will test an online repository that is user-driven, allowing users to access different combinations of resources to build their own learning activities, to rate materials, and to contribute their own materials. The basis of this pilot will repurpose learning materials developed for the NuMBerS project, which comprises a series of online materials to support the use of numerical techniques. NuMBerS was developed initially for biosciences students, but has subsequently been shown to be applicable across a range of subject areas.
