Section 6a. Resources for flexible and blended learning

Resources for learners to access independently need to be:

  • clear and well presented;
  • relevant and engaging;
  • have very clear instructions;
  • be in appropriately small ‘chunks’ or ‘step by step’;
  • be at the appropriate level for the learner, including readability;
  • provide answers, feedback or self checking guidelines.

Access to resources

Materials can be made available to learners as:

  • paper-based ‘packs’ of materials, or ‘text books’;
  • signposting to materials that are accessible via an external website;
  • links to your own VLE (see below);
  • resources emailed to learners at agreed times or provided on memory sticks/CD-Roms;

Several websites offer free access to online and downloadable learning resources
