Abstract

The Learner Independence Project was designed to be closer to students and cover their everyday needs. Based on the fact that WebCT covers students’ academic and formal requirements, L.I.P. was aiming to be the place that covers informal and everyday students’ requirements. With the use of a more informal and user friendly environment LIP includes chat rooms, tips and hints blogs, thoughts blogs, plagiarism tests, experience surveys and threads that can be shared with links and information, contact with business school staff and assessment section.

All incoming students now have access to a student mentor before they come to induction. The scheme is being extended to Singapore students in 2010/11. Eight students on the BSC International Business (Singapore programme) came to Birmingham for a study abroad placement from March – May 2010. Six of these have elected to finish their programme in the UK, and they will mentor the 25 on the second intake who will visit Birmingham in 2011.
