On 1st September 2011, CitySpace will be switched off after 8 years of service to the university. The E-Learning Unit (ELU) was established with five staff members in 2003 to support the implementation of this VLE. WebCT Vista had a stint under the title City Online Learning before becoming CitySpace. To celebrate this occasion, the LDC are collecting memories from staff and students, current and past, to create a CitySpace obituary. Share your memories at: https://www.survey.bris.ac.uk/city/cityspaceobit/
Here are some of the first memories:
Student from School of Informatics:
First tool that I used when I started my MSc in 2009, and fairly intuitive to use, but rather clunky. Did find useful as I had not used anything similar to this since I graduated in 1991! Enjoyed the on line messaging especially when studying late.
Dr William Lyons, staff member from School of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences:
As I say farewell to an old friend who provided equal measure of convience and fustration *wipes a tear from ones eye*, I find myself updating my lecture material!!!
Staff member from School of Arts:
cityspace – the betamax of VLEs
