What’s been hot this year?

As the colleges take their summer break I am hoping to catch up on some of the elearning resources that the RSC NW team have discovered this year.

Here are a few of them;


Thanks to Anita for pointing this one out.  A website with lots of online resources for interactive whiteboards, including word magnets, random choice generators and timers.

Mouse Mischief

Thanks to John Dalziel for finding this one.  A free powerpoint plug in from Microsoft which allows multiple mice to be used.  This means many students can vote and interact at the same time.  A really useful budget alternative to expensive voting kits


Safeguarding has been a high priority this year and while there are lots of resources & videos available, most are aimed at younger children.  This high quality interactive game/drama from channel 4 has a holyoaks/skins fell to it and is aimed at collage age kids.  It’s very engrossing and teaches a range of online safety skills without patronising

USB Microscopes

Whenever we show people this piece of kit we always get loads of ideas about how it could be used.  Not just for science but to show off the workings of a computer or how to attach false eyelashes.

MUVI camcorders

A tough but tiny clip on camcorders that record in high resolution. Clip on clothing for hands free recording of evidence.  Under £50 form Amazon
