The Learning and Teaching Support Network (LTSN) Generic Centre has set up a new project finder service.

“This database contains details of a variety of external nationally funded projects. It currently contains LTSN Subject Centre Miniprojects, FDTL 1-4, HEFCE Disability Strand 2, Action on Access regional projects, Innovations and TLTP projects.”

So now there's no excuse for not knowing about prior art in any given area, for example e-learning.
