What’s the e-Olympics?
The e-Olympics is an integrated online-learning training program developed by the JISC Regional Support Centre for Scotland North and East. Aimed at front-line lecturing staff of further or higher education subjects, the programme is designed to guide participants through the stages involved in planning, constructing, resourcing and delivering a learning sequence in their own teaching areas.

Buildingthe framework for the object in a systematic and structured manner
Tackling the issues of student interactivity and accessibility
Creating resources to support the delivery of the learning sequence, drawing on a mixture of original materials and pre-prepared learning assets from existing repositories
