Vital web site to close

This site is due to close on 31 July 2015. If you have any queries associated with this site, please contact customerservices@jisc.ac.uk. We will be looking at the content available in this site and will be moving it into an alternate host in the near future. Announcements on these arrangements will be made via the Jisc website http://www.jisc.ac.uk.




Vital provides educators with access to free, innovative and dynamic teaching resources as well as peer-to-peer networking opportunities across England. Vital is now a member of the Jisc family of organisations supporting teaching and learning across the UK and inspiring progress though technology.

School of the Month

Each month we will be featuring one school’s technology-enhanced learning journey under our School of the Month banner. So before embarking on your new IT project or purchasing all that expensive equipment, why not benefit from the approaches taken and lessons learnt by other schools? In the same spirit, if you have successfully used technology to enhance teaching and learning, why not share your project stories with other educational organisations?
