There are certain process and practices in the use of technologies to support teaching, learning and assessment that you may only use a few times a year, and at broadly dispersed intervals. This can sometimes result in you not remembering the process and having to try and re-locate the ‘how to’ instructions on the DLaT hub.

Using the bookmark function in your web browser can be a good way to keep track of where these essential ‘how to’ guides are located, and provide you with instant access to them – without having to search for them every time in the DLaT hub.
