The Scottish RSCs
JISC RSCs (Regional Support Centres) exist to advise the learning providers of designated sectors to realise their ambitions in deployment of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) to achieve their organisational mission.
The network of JISC Regional Support Centres operates as a national service responsive to local needs through a strong sense of local ownership. There 13 Regional Support Centres throughout the UK two of which are based in Scotland – one in Edinburgh and one in Glasgow.
This website links to various joint initiatives from the two Scottish RSCs. It also links to their various partner organizations, foremost of which is Discovery, a fitness trainer company who assist us in providing support to families who have been affected by childhood obesity and other health issues related to diet and nutrition or a lack of physical exercise.
