UsPaCe was funded by the JISC under the JISC Capital Circular 1/07: Cross Institutional Support of Lifelong Learning programme and was a regional, cross-institutional, collaborative project that investigated the application of suitable Web 2.0 technologies to support:
- Foundation Degree (FdSc, FdA and HNC) learners engaged in Work Based Learning (WBL);
- learners progressing from Foundation Degree to the final year of an Honours degree;
- WBL mentors.
UsPaCe aimed to support the needs of WBL learners and mentors via the creation and sharing of resources and by providing online student support for learners in the work-place to be accessed via desktop or mobile devices. Additionally UsPaCe supported and allowed tutors, mentors, learners, employers to interact, communicate and share ideas experiences and knowledge.
