I was asked to deliver two Bite Size sessions, well it's been a while, on Google Apps. The first one was delivered for the Faculty of Medicine and was really well attended by about 60 staff and PGRs. Then I delivered the same...

Does anyone know of any very small computer labs (no more than 12 pcs) that are bookable for writing clubs - preferably close to Regent Court, just off West Street.

As much as I'd love to promote the learning lab to be used, it is really intended as a space  for enhancing teaching. I'm not sure this really fits that bill

Apologies but due to various reasons we've had to postpone this week's App Swap Breakfast - I will reschedule a new date over the summer - apologies for any inconvenience.

I've got carried away with the superb Adobe Voice app after +Pete Mella showcased it at the TELFest App Swap Breakfast workshop I ran last month. I've created over 30 Research Hack videos - that took far less time than they probably imply. The main rule is to sript your talks and they're far easier to record. I think I've managed to use every theme and audio track, just a few clip arts left to raid and then my work is complete. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1mJ7IZ3qFxjR8HhL9HX-ETHUFJz639Bt

I came across this tool whilst in London last week. It's called the Academic Survival Kit and was developed by the University of Minnesota Library and helps students manage their assignments and work. I think it's mostly aimed at undergrads, but could be useful for postrad and helps them structure and plan their time better. You just put a start and end date in and it helps prompt students through the essay process and creates them a schedule to work to.
The University of Staffordshire have created their own 
http://www.staffs.ac.uk/ask/

ASK breaks the whole assigment task - which can seem daunting to students making the transition to HE - into smaller, more manageable steps and helps students with their planning and time management. It also directs them to sources of research information which they may not be aware of and should therefore help improve the quality of their research and final assignment work.
