The project team contains senior members from all the relevant professional and academic services. It is led by the Director of Education responsible or TEL in collaboration with the senior managers from Student Services and from. The project will have significant input from students and from teachers, and the prototype architecture will be implemented in the Learning Societies Lab in the School of Electronics and Computer Science, which has experience of exposing data through RDF, widget implementation and managing and delivering JISC projects responding to university education strategy.

Professor Hugh Davis (Principle Investigator) is the University Director of Education responsible for TEL and is Professor of learning technology leading the Learning Societies Lab in the School of Electronics and Computer Science. He is responsible for e-learning strategy across the university, chairs the Technology Enhanced Learning Steering and Implementation Group, and leads the Southampton Learning Environment Working Group. He has a long history of research and innovation in Learning Technology with more than 200 publications and he has led many previous JISC projects including Dialog Plus (Digital Libraries in the Classroom), MPLAT (mobile e-learning), FREMA (Framework Reference Model for Assessment) and EdSpace (which produced the EdShare repository based on ePrints). He is a member of JISC Learning and Teaching Committee.
