Everyone needs a little help sometimes……
Whether staff or student, at times we could do with a little bit of (iLearn) help.
Want to know how to get some iLearn help for yourself or know where to point students?
- email firstname.lastname@example.org
- lodge a ticket with OneHelp
- Quick guides (includes videos)
- Info Sheets (Tips, tricks, tool guides, checklists and more in-depth resources to help you get the most out of iLearn)
- FAQs (access via this link or by this in the red bar across the top of the screen in iLearn )
- One to one appointments (email email@example.com to request)
- Drop-in Clinics run twice a year two weeks prior to and first week of semester
- Training – there is always a plethora of online or face-to-face training going on. Teach a man to fish……
People often lament that there is no help for students, however, this is soooo not the case.
Imagine in a chemistry lesson being able to draw 3D representations of chemistry molecules. Imagine any design class where your 3D drawings can be made physical.
LIX: The World’s Smallest 3D Printing Pen Lets You Draw in the Air
LIX is the latest contender in the handheld 3D-printing field. Launched on Kickstarter this month, the developers say the super compact design is smaller than any other pen on the market and it can even be powered by the electricity from a USB port. After turning it on the LIX takes less than a minute to heat up and you’re ready to start creating vertical illustrations.
