The WEIoT funding has created opportunities for the educational partners to invest in cutting edge technology to provide learners and employers with facilities to drive forward the developments needed to help build recovery.
The focus on technical skills and education offered by the collaborative approach brings wider benefits and the WEIoT will support learners who may not have thought that higher level skills training was for them using our digital connectivity to its full potential.
A fantastic example of this is partnership work with Jisc and Barco to build trailblazing ‘virtual classroom’ to support the WeIoT.
Weston College, the lead organisation for the West of England Institute of Technology (IoT), has launched a virtual classroom in a first for further education (FE) in the UK.
The project, developed with support from Jisc and technology supplier Barco, includes innovations such as mobile extending cameras, and provides the opportunity for enhanced remote-access education.
