About Me!


Louise Jakobsen

I am passionate about the potential technology has to enhance learning and support teaching.

Currently the eLearning Curriculum Manager at a large FE College in Leeds, I manage a team with responsibility for moving forward the eLearning agenda and supporting staff working in and around Leeds through that process. As a team we develop the college VLE (Moodle) and increase staff confidence inĀ and use of technology through a comprehensive training offer and departmental (staff) eLearning Mentors. Some responsibility for supporting / increasing the use / understanding of accessibility tools is also included in my team’s remit.

My enthusiasm is evident through the various training, sharing and motivating strategies that are used. I have worked in FE, HE, Adult and Community Learning and Local Government for several years delivering high class training to teachers, managers, care staff and small & medium businesses.

I have also been involved in developing resources and delivering training for and on behalf of national organisations including NIACE and THinK FE.

I am dedicated to continuous personal and professional development and won a National Training Award in 2004. I completed my MSc in Multimedia and eLearning with the University of Huddersfield and had the chapter ‘Embedding eLearning in FE’ published in the book ‘Applied eLearning and eTeaching in HE’ in 2008.
