The Learning Hub

The Learning Hub is Harper Adams University’s Virtual Learning Environment.

We are keen to support tutors in creating interactive and engaging learning object and activities on their module plages based on good instructional design principles. Learning objects can range from a simple PDF documents, narrated PowerPoint presentations to full length videos. The Hub includes a number of learning activities activities including quizzes, glossaries, forums and feedback tools to name but a few.

The Learning Hub is the main access point to Turnitin, our system for students to upload their assignments for plagiarism detection, and increasingly also for online marking via the GradeMark feature.
