Originally funded by the Skills Funding Agency, the NLN materials represent one of the most substantial and wide-ranging collections of e-learning materials in the UK.
The materials are small, flexible 'bite-sized' episodes of learning. They are not whole courses but are designed to support a wide range of subject and topic areas. The materials adopt a range of approaches involving some knowledge acquisition, a chance to practice and absorb, and some form of assessment to check that the learning has been understood and the learning outcome(s) achieved.
The NLN materials are available to download to a learning platform or can be used online at www.nln.ac.uk and include:
- Numeracy/Application of Number
- Literacy/Communication Skills
- Wider Key Skills
