The Digital Toolkits, developed by the Flexible Online Learning Unit, build on the support given to staff during 2020, in the Blackboard modules 'Support in the Transition from F2f to Online' & 'Instructional Design'. Support was also developed for students, largely as part of preparation for exam periods.
The Staff Toolkit contains a course design planner as well as information & tutorials on how to successfully use the educational technologies at LYIT.
Both the 'Course Design Planner' and the Staff 'Digital Toolkit' work side-by-side, unpacking the elements needed for a
successful course structure while providing staff with appropriate instructional information to implement their learning designs.
Staff Digital Toolkit is accessible

The LYIT Student Toolkit is available to all LYIT students. The Toolkit contains information, guidance, support and signposting for students. It includes opportunities to practice completing and submitting tests and assessments through Blackboard, LYIT’s virtual online environment.
The toolkit aims to equip students with easy access to the information and supports they need to be successful throughout their LYIT journey, whether undergraduate, postgraduate, flexible or online. The Student Toolkit can be accessed via the Blackboard course window and is available to all students and staff.
