Technology is central to the way the Coleg offers an innovative teaching experience along with modules developed by Welsh-medium lecturers. The Porth e-learning platform is central to studies – it includes over 500 modules and 60 open educational resources.
Further use is made of technology in delivering collaborative modules, with the Coleg’s learning spaces located in six universities along with live HD video links to enable collaborative teaching. This opens doors to Welsh medium provision in subject areas where there is no specific provision in universities, expanding learning opportunities for students throughout Wales.
Where possible, the Coleg encourages the open sharing of resources. In addition to the resources and courses open to Welsh medium students, a number of entries in the Esboniadur are shared on a Creative Commons licence and placed on Wicipedia, the Welsh language Wikipedia. The Coleg’s Resources Library also includes video clips and open digital books, and a number of external resources are shared on open platforms including the Coleg’s site on Apple iTunes U and through Apple iBooks free of charge.
