New developments for BISSTO


You may be aware that this term has seen the launch of a completely overhauled BISSTO (Bolton Interactive Study Skills Tutorials Online). We hope that you are finding it useful. There have recently been some further enhancements to BISSTO that may be of interest:

  • A What’s on Section giving details of Bite Size Study Class and English for Success classes (location: homepage)
  • Presentation Skills Activity (location: Study Skills – Oral Presentations)
  • Information Literacy Tests, including the Ethical and Legal Use of Information (location: homepage)
  • Secondary and Primary sources activity (locations: Finding Information – Understanding the task; Study Skills – Essay Writing/Report Writing)
  • Identifying keywords activity (location: Finding Information – Understanding the task)
  • Abbreviations activity (location: Study Skills – Note Taking)

More content is being worked on an a further release of BISSTO is scheduled for some time before Christmas. BISSTO is available via the BISSTO button on the right-hand side of the library website. As ever, if you have any feedback on BISSTO or any other library service, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
