App, App and Away: Workshop Handout #open4ed #GAS

Friday (20th May) was our Open for Education event. There was a real buzz as over 100 delegates squeezed into the NeSC to absorb a packed programme of open and free stuff. Once we get the videos from the event up I should do a separate post to highlight some of the best bits. In the […]

How it was made: eAssessment Scotland Google Spreadsheet booking form with website and Twitter integration

Even though our RSC is toast after this July we’ve continued our support for the eAssessment Scotland Conference until that time.
