About this guide

Welcome to SCIE’s Personalisation: a rough guide

This is the first of a new type of SCIE interactive resource, enabling you to personalise the content to meet your own needs and interests. Just choose the options from the blue menu bar at the bottom of the page and you will be able to go directly to sections you interested in, and bookmark them so you can return to them in future. (Please note you need to be registered and logged on to use this facility).

You can access this resource on your desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile phone. Although we have carried out extensive testing, you may experience some performance problems with Android players. As this publication is new, on both a content and technical level, we would really like to know how and where you use it, and appreciate any feedback that will help us make this Guide even better.


We will continue to update and expand its contents. Plans include incorporating our e-learning materials on Personalisation, which are currently being revised and will be released in 2013.
