The University of Manchester Library developed My Learning Essentials - a flexible blended learning programme deliberately designed to allow students access at the point of need, with support available via a suite of interactive online learning resources and in face-to-face workshops, skills clinics and Q&A support sessions.
Launched by the University of Manchester Library in September 2013, the entire programme is openly available to all students at the University on a self-selecting basis via the My Learning Essentials webpages; the online resources are also available for schools to embed in Blackboard as part of a curriculum-linked offer. It provides a consistent and comprehensive approach to academic skills development, accessible to all students on a self-selecting or guided basis, encouraging students to take a proactive approach to improving their skills while still being available at key moments of demand.
