Plymouth College of Art have received nearly £80,000 in JISC Funding to develop dynamic course data and content, increasing the flow of information between potential and current art, design and craft students and lecturers.

Working with social networking infrastructure (CREST Collaborate) originally developed to connect the CREST network of researchers, PCA’s work considers how to integrate this platform to serve the needs of course leaders in delivering  multi-media content to students.

The project has the potential to benefit not only PCA and the CREST community, but to show how a shared network can benefit institutions, students and specialist disciplines.
