Dr Christopher Jobling

Senior Lecturer



In this 5 minute video I demonstrate using three features of my institution’s VLE to support a practical in micro-controller code development for a group design exercise. The VLE is Blackboard Learn which we brand as MyStudies.

In the learning activity, which is an introduction to software version control, I use a feature called “adaptive release” with a structured learning activity called a “learning module” with a formative quiz and content review.

The exercise itself has been adapted from Version Control With Git which is part of an open educational resource called Software Carpentry which is open source and released under a Creative Commons Attribution License. This license allows end-users to do anything with the resource so long as attribution to the original source is given.
