In January 2010, the Bloomsbury Colleges, together with LIDC, were awarded a grant from JISC to fund the Bloomsbury Media Cloud project. The project aims to develop a shared digital media platform, to manage and store audio and video content. The project is making use of the "cloud", where content of differing formats and stored in different locations is pulled together into one place online.

In January 2008, the Bloomsbury Colleges were awarded £195,000 to manage the APT STAIRS project. The project investigated new technologies to provide a common space for users (students, teachers, administrators and researchers) with different skills to work online together. This innovative project focused on the use of online collaborative tools, and aimed to encourage uptake and adoption across the six partners in the Bloomsbury Colleges consortium.
The Colleges ran demonstrator projects, which made use of Google Docs and other similar tools, to engage all users in supporting and developing learning, teaching, administration and research.
