What is the Learning Space?
The Learning Space is an online environment provided by Falmouth University for learning and teaching. It is primarily a place students can visit to access resources including lecture notes, workshop hand outs and videos. It also provides extra opportunities for student engagement via activities such as forums, quizzes and tutorial signups.
The Learning Space is maintained and supported by the Digital Learning (DL) team.
