We’d like to tell you about some changes to the Virtual Training Suite.
Until August 2010 the Virtual Training Suite was part of the Intute service but due to funding changes, the management and operation of the service has reverted to the team at the Institute for Learning and Research Technology at the University of Bristol.
The main difference is that we are now simply the Virtual Training Suite, as we are no longer part of the Intute collection of services. The web address for the service will remain as http://www.vts.intute.ac.uk/ for the time being and all your old links / bookmarks will work.
Hopefully you won’t notice too much of a difference if you are using one of our bespoke tutorials, such as the Internet Detective or one of our 60 subject based Internet research skills tutorials.
During 2010/11 we will be exploring alternative funding models for the service, including subscription and membership. All of the tutorials will remain freely available until at least July 2011.
Further updates about what is happening with the Virtual Training Suite will appear on this blog and on the Future Plans page.
