Who is responsible for modules on Learning Space?
It is the responsibility of the module leader to ensure that all the required staff have access to the module.
Any audit that is carried out on module on Learning Space will use the module leader as a contact.

Is there a baseline for what is required within each module on Learning Space?
Yes. The guide on what to do before the start of the academic year has an overview of what those requirements are, and there is also a list of the criteria that will be used to audit against a module along with guidance on the separate elements of the institutional baseline.
Tip: For good practice module layout and inspiration, view the CAT101 Example (20/21) on Learning Space.
Does module content on Learning Space need to be accessible?
Yes. Staff are responsible for creating content that complies with accessibility guidelines. Teaching materials uploaded to the Learning Space need to be easily read and understood by all students. Ally, the university's accessibility tool will help staff to meet the accessibility regulations ensuring that module content will achieve the minimum 67% accessibility score. For further details, view the Make Documents Accessible on Learning Space guidance.
Important: From September 2020, it is a legal requirement that all documents added to the Learning Space must meet a set of accessibility standards. To help staff comply with these Government regulations, Ally is available on each course, module or resource page on Learning Space and offers advice on how to enhance the accessibility rating of documents.
Will there be multiple years worth of modules on the Learning Space?
Yes. We do not remove anything from Learning Space that is less than 3 years old. So, in other words, 3 years worth of modules will remain on Learning Space at all times.
