"The use of technology to support learning and teaching has changed dramatically in recent years.
Most institutions are now exploring the possibilities of e–learning and many have implemented VLEs or virtual learning environments. These tools offer great possibilities but they need to be used effectively if they are to deliver maximum benefit for students.
This infoKit takes you from the theoretical frameworks underpinning good teaching to the practice of e–learning. We consider how technology affects the roles of learner and teacher in a number of real–life scenarios. The infoKit is based on sound pedagogic approaches and draws on case studies of good practice across the UK.
Whether you are new to e–learning or an experienced practitioner there are pathways to guide you through the relevant sections of the infoKit. The infoKit will continue to grow and expand as the knowledge base develops and we welcome your participation in its further development."

"GPnotebook is a concise synopsis of the entire field of clinical medicine focussed on the needs of the General Practitioner.
The database is continually being updated by a team of authors. We take a pragmatic approach to authoring: we look out for topical issues, keep track of the journals and update material in response to user feedback.
We use a range of knowledge sources, including clinical experience, knowledge taken from literature reviews, original research articles and guidelines published by national and international bodies. In many cases references are made to sources of information; we are committed to making GPnotebook fully referenced in the near future. As a team we review each other's work but we also rely in the feedback from experts in primary care and the various clinical specialities to keep us on the right track.
Our editorial decisions are based on merit and are not influenced by any funding bodies.
We make every effort to ensure that the contents of the site are correct however we cannot be held responsible for any errors or ommissions."
