The EDtech Portal

The EDtech Portal was established in 2016 as part of a project I was completing for my MA in E-Learning Design and Development at CIT.
The aim of this project was to create e-learning content and so I created a platform which features free learning courses for teachers. Course content ranges from getting started with coding in the classroom to getting started with digital assessments.
Upon completion of each course,  the teacher will be rewarded with a certificate. There are also opportunities to engage with other teachers through the inbuilt forum on the platform.
