The Informatics Teaching Festival is a series of events aimed at addressing some of the issues raised by moving much of our learning and teaching online in September 2020.

  1. Thanks for putting all this online.

    More staff will have watched these than you think. The adblocker that I use blocks Kaltura’s tracking scripts, so the view count doesn’t increment when I watch these videos.

    I also block google analytics, which is tracking visitor numbers on this blog…

    Adblocker use amongst Informaticians is probably quite high!
