The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) covers a very large area and makes use of innovative technology to link with students and staff for learning, teaching and research. 

As such, an investigation of the role of the University as the creator and publisher of e-textbooks and networked resources is a natural imperative. As part of a Jisc-funded project, together with colleagues at Edinburgh Napier University, Professor Frank Rennie set out to produce two e-textbooks with a complementary open access website. Their use is being carefully evaluated here at Edinburgh Napier University, and the whole development process is being documented to share with the sector. 

During this session, you'll find out how the need to create a sense of community and further enable distance learning, has led to an endeavour that could have long lasting impacts on research, teaching practice, and the student experience.
