"JISC Advance expertise has helped us kick start a major project to implement e-portfolios as part of our e-assessment strategy.
We were able to develop a structured process to identify our specfic needs. They gave us impartial feedback and an approach to enable us to understand the various criteria we need to consider. This will support decision making for our future solution and as a result of the workshop with JISC Advance we are more focussed on how we start to translate our requirements into a fit for purpose system specification. We would recommend using JISC Advance."
"We had the idea of developing a ‘HackFest’ - a Mobile Learning Project that challenged young people to bring their entrepreneurial business ideas to a workshop that would show them how to turn their idea into a Mobile Application. JISC Advance supported the project by providing the technology expertise.
We developed a close working relationship with JISC Advance's advisors who provided the technical ‘know how’ in a bespoke workshop session for the students. The session provided a practical demonstration of how technology could be used as a lever to facilitate business ideas and provided an opportunity for the students to create mock ups of their Mobile Apps.
JISC Advance helped the project to be a great success and the students will be pitching their ideas in the Peter Jones Foundation Boardroom."
