We presented the Reading On Screen site at the Higher York eLearning Conference on 4 June and it seemed to be well-received by the delegates. Some comments included recommending that university committees ditch their reams of paper and use digital instead (drawing upon advice we can offer on the site), that we’re not afraid to acknowledge that students and staff need support in the use of these devices (our highlighting different skills are required) and suggestions to include the site as part of student induction/transition activities. At the start of the session I delivered a background presentation relating some of the research in this field to our rationale for the site and its aims and purpose. You can watch a recording I have made of this presentation and view the slides via Slideshare.
