ORB

Note! We are retiring the Online Resource Bank (ORB) over the 2018-19 academic year.
Please see https://blogs.essex.ac.uk/it/2018/04/retiring-the-online-resource-bank-orb/ for details.

As of September 2018, ORB is now read-only, with existing materials kept for reference.
Staff and students looking for current teaching materials should refer to Moodle.

Resources for Biological Sciences (School of)

ORB is a managed learning environment (MLE). It is a service that allows module content providers to publish materials to the web that are relevant to a specific module.
