BREO
• What is BREO?
• BREO is an e-learning resource which is used in
  the following way :
 ▫ To add lecture notes
 ▫ To set discussion forums
 ▫ Video of guest speakers which allows students to
   access in their own time
 ▫ External web links which students can access and
   use for further reference in their work
 ▫ Case studies and suggested reading.
BREO CONT
• All information added can be displayed when
  needed by a date control and finish date which
  allows work to be hidden.
• You can monitor how many times the resources
  provided has been looked at.
• Tutor can have online interaction with students
  at a set time.
BREO

Conclusion
Evaluation
• The use of VLE was fantastic and encouraged the students to interact with each
  other and enabled students to access information when they are not able to attend
  the lectures. The feedback I received from the students was positive as information
  was readily available to them and could be used for different assignments and
  modules.
• To help other colleagues I shared the above as part of our inset day to encourage HE
  tutors to use Wen3.0 technologies to support their learners and to gain confidence in
  the use of ILT.
•
• Our Head of Higher Education was particularly impressed as some HE staff lack
  confidence in their use of ILT. The tutors’ response was also positive and some were
  surprised with the tasks which could be set up.
