    This is a great resource and a valuable addition to the support available across the institution.
    You can use many of the videos as a flipped classroom approach to learning as well as using these to support your own continual professional development – easier to watch, pause and re-watch at your own speed and time. You can also download complete courses to your mobile devices to watch at your leisure.
    Excellent resource!

    This does look like a really great resource! I wonder if our library will buy it…

    This may be a silly question, but how do we log in? ‘Individual’ or ‘Organisation’? – does it recognise our YSJ log-in, or do we create a fresh one?
