Abertay students to contribute towards review of BBC online services

HOW university students engage with the BBC’s online services is to be the subject of a survey taking place tomorrow in Dundee.

Students at the city’s Abertay University are to be interrogated by the BBC Audience Council Scotland as part of a review by the BBC’s governing body, the BBC Trust, of the Corporation’s online provision.

Says a media release issued by the university: “Abertay University was asked to contribute to the review because of its leading position educating the next generation of digital technologists and its strong working relationship with the BBC Trust.

“Students will be giving their views on what the BBC is successfully achieving online, areas that need improvement, as well as ways to improve its future online provision.”
