Dr Kielan Yarrow from the Department of Psychology has developed extensive online resources for students on his Biological Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience modules. Each of his Moodle courses contains RSS feeds, revision quizzes and opportunities for students to complete a timed essay on revision topics which for which he gives formative feedback.
He also uses Adobe Presenter to record revision presentations ahead of the students’ exams. In this way he can keep his in-class PowerPoint slides quite minimal, but still give students a meaningful revision tool when they come to look back over them at the end of term. In this case study he describes his reasons for using Adobe Presenter.
