In line with Borders College Digital Strategy and investment, we have developed the new iLearn Zone as an alternative area within the Galashiels campus, which is available to all students to drop in and continue their learning independently but in a supported environment.

The iLearn Zone is equipped to support independent learning with plug in and USB ports to enable you to work on your own or loan laptops and devices. In line with our vision to promote independent learning skills, loan laptops are available from the automated lockers in reception.

Whether you are completing assignments, updating your personal profile, writing up course work or working as part of a group session, the iLearn Zone will be available for you to use during your College day.

You will be supported in the iLearn Zone by Independent Learning Facilitator Keith Nairn. He will be on hand to provide basic digital or ICT support as well as signpost you to alternative help should it be required, e.g. ISLT helpdesk, Library. Keith will be working closely with the Curriculum staff to ensure your learning journey is appropriately supported and individual work plans are being followed.

In addition, we are planning to utilise the iLearn Zone to facilitate digital information and skills sessions to further enhance your learning at various times throughout the academic year.

The iLearn Zone is your space, an alternative place for you to study, so please make the most of it. We encourage all our students to get involved and, along with your Student Representatives, we look forward to your feedback and working with you to develop the iLearn Zone, to meet your needs and offer different opportunities to add to your learning experience.

  • The Zone will be available from 8:30am in the morning, allowing access before classes begin, to 12:30pm and from 1:30pm to 4:30pm Monday to Thursday and 4:00pm on Friday.
