E-Learning Activities (continued):

In my capacity as a Language Teaching Development Officer at the ESML Department of the University of Bath I have been involved in the project of designing e-learning sites for Russian-English studies. The resulting electronic facilities for teaching and learning had the following functionality: I thus gained experience of working with two different Virtual Learning Environments: Blackboard and Moodle. In addition to designing new materials, as well as systematizing and digitizing existing ones, and incorporating them into existing web-platforms, I have also enhanced the existing facilities. This was done by programming in html and using original methods and ideas to shortcut the restrictions and rigid structures of the VLEs in order to give them some additional features, characteristic more of specific-purpose web sites.
