We Are Happy To Announce An Exciting New Partnership!

Rugby School Online is delighted to be partnering with the Blended Learning Consortium to expand our further education footprint and support the STEM curriculum adoption by offering BLC members a 20% discount on all Rugby School Online Products. The Blended Learning Consortium was set up to support colleges in moving forward to meet accredited guidelines and to allow members to benefit from the creation and sharing of FE specific resources and member discounts. It currently boasts 166 members and has released over 1,800 hours of high-quality blended learning resources that are being widely used within further education, these materials having been democratically voted for by BLC members.

“The rapid move to remote learning we’ve seen through COVID-19 has highlighted the need for teaching staff to reconsider the way they integrate technology into their delivery, ensuring learners are offered interactive and engaging experiences, and opportunities to collaborate online.”

The BLC and Rugby School Online share some key beliefs and ideologies, which

underpins our partnership working towards a common goal:

  • The use of flipped classroom resources allowing teaching staff more time to facilitate learning;
  • Benefitting learners from a more flexible learning experience.

 

Key feedback has also been that Blended Learning Consortia members have noticed an overall improvement in learner digital and employability skills coming from increasing the use of systematic blended learning in the curriculum.

The 2020 JISC Digital Insights Survey of FE Learners (completed by 19,137 FE students), reported the following responses to the question, “What is most useful to learners?” when considering online learning experiences. Participating students reported these as being the most valuable.

Rugby School Online’s self-paced learning programme includes videos and practice questions, giving instant feedback. The live online teaching classes have embedded interactive questions to check understanding and collaboration tools offering students an engaging learning experience.

We look forward to continued success in our partnership with the Blended Learning Consortium, and hope that our resources benefit both member staff and participating students alike.
