'Outstanding ICT initiative of the year' 2008 winner announced

An initiative that has created a wealth of openly available multimedia content won the JISC/Times Higher Award. University of Westminster lecturer Russell Stannard received the award from Sir Ron Cooke, Chair of JISC, for his websites which build upon pioneering work using video to mark students' work. Using screen recording software, Stannard recorded himself walking through various Web 2.0 technologies with a voice-over, which were then uploaded to a newly-created website. The site quickly proved popular and rapidly built into a bank of over 30 videos
