Bloomsbury Media Cloud

Launch Event, Friday 20th May

In January 2010, JISC awarded the Bloomsbury Colleges £90,000 to deliver a project - the Bloomsbury Media Cloud, which builds upon their portfolio of shared licenses and collaborative approaches to supporting learning, teaching and research. The project, running in partnership with the London International Development Centre (LIDC) aimed to establish a shared media platform across the Colleges to create a consortium site with a focus on issues relating to international development.

This is the official launch of the new media platform - please contact if you would like to attend.
