Combining blended learning with role play in an online simulation of the Bletchley Park Enigma codebreakers in WW2

Project leaders: Jeff Neat, Adam Wootton, Simon Rimmington

Foundation Year Mathematics and Computer Science students study mathematical logic, set theory, permutations and cryptography.
By using discrete online videos, research notes, national archive records, and online applications, they apply their knowledge to follow the path of an WW2 Enigma machine encoded message from the point of its creation through to the application of cryptographical techniques at Bletchley Park and ultimate analysis of the decipher into ULTRA Intelligence.
This project will link all of these resources together with online formative and summative assessment through Learning Pool e-learning platform to provide a learning experience that combines blended learning with role play.
