Welcome to the RIBA-studio website.
We hope, through this website, to provide something useful to participants on the RIBA's 'distance learning' programme that lead to RIBA Certificate (Part 1) and RIBA Diploma (Part 2).
Initially we will offer programme documentation: the reading lists, Guide Syllabus and Regulations, etc, a facility for uploading all assignments which will take the place of restricted email attachments, downloadable examples of previous candidate's submissions, an image gallery of some quite inspirational images, links you may find useful, and importantly, a forum where you can at least meet virtually. This forum also provides a facility for you to let us know what information you would value on this website, and how we might improve it. It is based on the academic platform 'Moodle' which although not a slick interface, is becoming a standard platform in universities. We therefore expect that it has a long term future, developing to meet new opportunities arising from trends in digital technology as much as new initiatives in the 21c learning environment.
This is just a beginning; we have plans to expand the remit of this website so that it offers an improved experience for participants on the RIBA's programmes. I hope that by working in a collaborative way, we can build something of value for you. Your ideas and feedback are both welcome and important.
