Posted February 3, 2010on:

As part of a wider project to develop more interactive and effective teaching and learning, West Cheshire College has been exploring use of the Nintendo Wii games console and Wii Fit. Staff in the Learning Resources team invited tutors to incorporate use of the Wii into their courses, and have been impressed with tutor responses and student engagement.
