ARA Learning Vlog – Behind the Scenes Northumberland Archives LEARN

Our latest Vlog is now available by clicking on the image below

Hello and welcome to the ARA Learning Vlog, a new vlog where we will be exploring all things learning and educational in archives. My name is Jennifer Hunt and I am the Social Media Officer for the Archives Learning and Education Section. 

Have you ever wanted to create learning resources, exhibitions or even contemplated starting your own online outreach sessions but didn’t know where to start? or if you have already had experience of outreach and wanted to know what has gone into other projects, then this is the vlog for you. 

Over the next four vlogs we’ll be taking a look behind the scenes and asking your questions to people who have experience of getting creative with outreach and learning. 

In this our third vlog Megan Wilson (LEARN Project Officer), Linda Bankier (Berwick Archivist) and Jo March (Senior Archivist) from Northumberland Archives are going to be chatting with me about their digital learning project LEARN. Then I’ll be asking them questions submitted to us by our members. 


Why did you create LEARN rather than running face to face sessions on these topics?

how did you decide which subjects to cover in your resources?

what were the benafits of running a joint project?

How have you monitored the success of your resources and what sort of feedback have you had?

End of Vlog

Sadly, that’s all we have time for today, thank you everyone for talking to me about your project to create a digital learning platform. 

I also want to thank everyone who submitted questions to us for this vlog. Our next vlog which should go out in October will be with Joss Grant and Rab Houston discussing how they developed the ‘Prisoners or Patients? Criminal Insanity in Victorian Scotland’ exhibitionplease submit them to us by email or look out for our calls for questions on Archives-NRA and Twitter.
