News from the Project Team

  • Speedwell have been appointed for our online MCQ solution. October 2019

  • Message from Head of Learning & Teaching Enhancement
    As part of the move to Digital First I am writing to advise you that the scanning of paper based examinations will end on the 29 September 2019. Any paper based examination papers received after 29 September 2019 will be returned to the module leader and will need to be processed manually. In the next two weeks we will be introducing Speedwell an online examinations system. Speedwell will be onsite for a Kick off meeting and then will provide training.

    Licensing for Speedwell is based on student numbers for existing programmes which has MCQ and other examination formats as part of module assessments. The first phase of implementation is only for these existing programmes.
