The Digital Storytelling site is a place where learners can publish video and animations. It is similar to YouTube. However, all videos and animations and any comments added to published materials are viewed by an administrator before publication thus ensuring that the site is free from inappropriate material.
This site provides the tools for you to build up an argument or description of an event, person or historical period by placing items in a virtual box. What items, for example, would you put in a box to describe your life; the life of a Victorian Servant or Roman soldier; or to show that slavery was wrong and unnecessary? You can display anything from a text file to a movie. You can also view and comment on the museum boxes submitted by others.

FlashMeeting is an application based on the Adobe Flash 'plug in' and Flash Media Server. Running in a standard web browser window, it allows a dispersed group of people to meet from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Typically a meeting is pre-booked by a registered user and a url, containing a unique password for the meeting, is returned by the FlashMeeting server. The 'booker' passes this on to the people they wish to participate, who simply click on the link to enter into the meeting at the arranged time.
During the meeting one person speaks (i.e. broadcasts) at a time. Other people can simultaneously contribute using text chat, the whiteboard, or emoticons etc. while waiting for their turn to speak. This way the meeting is ordered, controlled and easy to follow. A replay of the meeting is instantly available, to those with the 'unique' replay url.
FlashMeeting users belong to one of three account types; Guest, Sign In and Booker.

Xeno (providing on-line learning and support for young people and those caring for them)
Xeno is a co-operative venture for members of SEGfL and Uniservity. We are building a ‘virtual learning community’ of professionals and young people that enables resources to be jointly developed and encourages co-operative learning.
‘Personalised learning’ will put the learner at the centre of provision and give every child access to online tools. Xeno is an online environment that will act as a virtual school for children who are disconnected from normal schooling. Schools and local authorities generally struggle to maintain levels of achievement with these groups and research recommends catch-up support and independent/individual learning opportunities out of school. SEGfL proposes to facilitate the combination of local authority efforts so that resources can be jointly developed or procured, good practice can be shared and children can store and retrieve their work and learning records
Xeno will become a focal point of opportunity for pupils going in and out of mainstream education and an opportunity for local authorities to support their own pupils but also to contribute towards the whole in terms of content, materials and staffing. It will be of particular interest to staff and children in pupil referral units, hospital and home tuition services, young offenders’ institutions, teenage parents’ units, young carers’ organisations, home education organisations and looked after children’s services as it will create a virtual community for these, often isolated, professionals. It could also be used by schools to support pupils that are temporarily excluded.
Through its partnership with Uniservity and using the cLc, Xeno will work closely with the relevant professionals to provide:
• Learning Platform functionality with secure, remote access and online storage.
• Links to a wide range of resources to provide curriculum materials, including the internet.
• Links to schemes of work that can guide students through a variety of curriculum objectives.
• Provision of an e-Portfolio that can be stored, updated and retrieved.
• Personal space for students to store and retrieve their work.
• Interaction with tutors (issue tasks, hand-in work, feedback grades and comments).
• Dialogue with tutors (leave questions and get answers).
• Dialogue with other students (a virtual school community).
• All in a safe, secure, on-line environment.
