This paper introduces UK-SpecIAL, developed to help engineering students better understand how their modules relate to each other and to the engineering professions towards which they are working, and to raise their awareness of their progress towards UK-SPEC learning outcomes. Our example is for electronic, electrical and computer engineering, but could be extended for other engineering subjects. Log data indicates that learners use the information provided about their general progress across modules and questionnaire responses suggest students consider UK-SpecIAL to be a useful support for their independent learning.
