Digital technology can have an important role in the learning process, including:

  • delivering learning content
  • supporting collaborative learning
  • managing the learning process.

Learning technologies work better in some circumstances than others.

We’ve developed guides about using learning technologies in social care both for organisations and learners.

We also have a range of case studies which show learning technologies in action.

This guide aims to help you with your responsibility for learning and development and make the most of learning technologies.

It offers a non-technical overview of learning technologies, with information to help you assess what might be useful. It also looks at learning technologies in the context of organisational settings and processes.
