Top Menu

This shows how the website is categorised and split into six menu subject areas:

  1. Independent Learning
  2. CPD
  3. Employer Engagement
  4. Events
  5. Blog
  6. Resources

In addition, there is also a menu tab for “Events” which details all upcoming digital learning events and the final button on the menu leads to the “Blog”. The blog button shows all the blogs posts from all the four subject areas. The final tab on the top menu called “Fellowship Project Outputs” links to project resources produced as part of the digital learning fellowship project.

So you have the option to read blog posts by topic area by clicking on one of the four subject areas or by viewing all posts by date from the blog menu option.

Rotating Main Banner

Immediately after the top menu, you will see the rotating banner. This shows key information for visitors to the site and also highlights any hot topics you should be aware of first. The banner automatically rotates around the topics. If you hover your mouse over the banner, you’ll see arrows appear on the left and right. You can click on these arrows to manually scroll through the banners. Click on any of the banner images to read the story.

You’ll also see dots underneath the banner images. This shows you how many banners are currently rotating around. You can also click on the dots to go directly to another banner.
