Peterborough Regional College, a member of the more than 100 college strong Blended Learning Consortium (BLC), has implemented software designed by C-Learning that combines online modules available through the BLC with the online learning solution Google Classroom to enable learning at any time, on any device and in any location.
Google Classroom, part of the Google G-Suite technology now used by more than 90 million educators globally, enables easy and impactful online learning that brings teachers and students together online. C-Learning, a Google Premier Partner and education specialist consultancy, created the BLC G-Suite Edition software to enable educators to easily and quickly access the BLC modules through Google Classroom supporting self directed learning at the same time as reducing workloads and cost.
Tony Warner, Learning Technologies Manager at Peterborough Regional College said “As part of our move to G-Suite for Education, we needed to enable all of our Lecturers and Assessors to be able to use the great content from the Blended Learning Consortium. But we needed to do this in a fast and simple way, empowering our staff to build engaging and interactive content in their lessons. Using Google Classroom and the C-Learning software they can add BLC content to their Google Classrooms in three clicks. It’s that simple and takes about twenty seconds to do. The solution also includes an analytics dashboard so we are able to report on and monitor the self directed learning that has taken place.”
Jamie Smith, Executive Chairman of C-Learning commented “It’s great to be supporting the team at Peterborough Regional College who are taking a leading approach to education technology that is impactful. Many educators are facing reduced budgets but increasing demands so less money has to go further, and most educators are increasingly stretched when it comes to time. Providing learning focused solutions that save time, money and make life better has been the foundation of C-Learning for more than ten years and we are thrilled to be collaborating with the College as it implements proven technologies that make a positive difference.”
Peter Kilkoyne, ILT Director at Heart of Worcestershire College said “The G-Suite app is a fabulous tool which allows teaching staff to easily add BLC content into their Google Classrooms and online courses. It also has great tracking functionality allowing teachers and managers to monitor student engagement and progress.”
The BLC G-Suite Edition software requires no complex implementation and enables any College to seamlessly harness the power and resources of Google G-Suite technology with the bespoke online provision of the Blended Learning Consortium.
