Project: Non-funded ProjectProjects


EDNER - the formative evaluation of the UK higher education sector's Distributed National Electronic Resource (DNER) - was a three year project being undertaken by the Centre for Research in Library & Information Management (CERLIM) at the Manchester Metropolitan University and the Centre for Studies in Advanced Learning Technology (CSALT) at Lancaster University. It concluded on the 31st of July 2003.

CSALT was especially interested in the evaluation of the teaching and learning aspects of the DNER and issues papers and publications related to our work can be found on the EDNER web site.

Following the restructuring of the JISC, EDNER focussed on the development of the JISC Information Environment as well as the formative evaluation of the 5/99 Development Programme and its constituent projects. Although EDNER did not evaluate individual projects, it worked closely with all those involved in the Programme and shared lessons emerging from this important development as widely as possible.

The EDNER project was followed by a one year extension project from July 2003 until July 2004 EDNER+.
