EnvELOP gets a much needed boost

E4C's e-learning programme

I am delighted to report that EnvELOP has received a much needed boost from a grant awarded to help with developing content and upgrading our e-learning platform.

EnvELOP stands for Environmental Education and Learning Online Programmes and will be E4C’s vehicle for delivering lessons and activities using rich media.  This will include serious games (educational games), virtual learning environments, and video tutorials as well as downloadable resources for use by teachers, parents and students.

The grant has been awarded by Business Link’s Innovation Advisory Service programme, and will buy us consultancy support from Three Hares and our e-learning upgrade from Light Media.

In time, it is our aim for EnvELOP to provide a robust and comprehensive e-learning resource for schools, other wildlife conservation organisations, parents, children and young people.

If you would like more information about EnvELOP or any of E4C’s programmes, then please contact me on 01788 833232 or by email:

Harvesting the Sunshine

I’m delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding support through Innovation Networks for the development of our bee game aimed at primary school children.  The game will form part of our blended learning provision under the Harvesting the Sunshine banner, which comprises e-learning materials and resources, games, and the Inspired by Nature workshops.

We have also been awarded INDEX vouchers to the value of £3,000 to buy academic support for EnvELOP and Inspired by Nature.  At the moment, I’m hoping that this will help us with the develoment of environmental education materials.  We need writers and graphic designers to produce robust lesson plans and information for the e-learning programmes.

Final Presentation

From November 2008 to March 2009 we had the privilege of working with a group of Practice of Management students from Warwick Business School who helped with the strategy development for EnvELOP as part of their year long MBA programme.  I am delighted to report that the POM students won the prize for the best project.

This is the second group of POM students that E4C has worked with, and both have been very successful projects. 

We are in the process of writing our submission for the next intake of students in October 2009. 

We are still seeking writers and developers to produce education materials for our e-learning programmes.  If you or anyone you know can help with this, then please do get in touch with me.  Email: denise.taylor at
