Extra content now available


As some of you have found, there are certain elements of SNAB online that we did not manage to publish in time for the launch of the site. This decision was taken to ensure we could get most of the materials up for the start of term, and we apologise unreservedly for the wait for aspects such as the Media Bank and Checkpoint answers.

We are very pleased to announce that this material is now available as an additional course, accessible using your existing username and password. This content can then be copied into your existing course - for detailed instructions please click here. We are also pleased to announce that the forums are now available - please see the links on the left hand side of this page.

As a general point, thank you for your patience in bearing with us as we establish the new site, especially to those seasoned SNAB users who have obviously spent time getting comfortable with the old one. The internal team is working incredibly hard behind the scenes to try to assist with some of the issues you've been having and to make this process a smoother one.
