NTU Virtual Learning Rooms

NTU offer a collaborative module development process and templates to support consistency of the student experience across accessible module Learning Rooms. NTU use an online learning standard based on the Quality Matters framework to ensure the highest quality student experience of online learning.

I love the Learning Room style a lot. It's really engaging and the layout makes perfect sense; it has a clear flow and is easy to use. The images/card interaction are especially useful for people who are more visual. I like the 'check your understanding' sections as they help to consolidate key information.
