The new revolution in e-learning is here. But what exactly is a VLE and how will it improve the learning process?
BECTA tells us:
A virtual learning environment (VLE) is a standardised, computer-based environment that supports the delivery of web-based learning and facilitates on-line interaction between students and teachers. A VLE might consist of a variety of components designed both to assist in conventional classroom learning as well as support distance learners gaining remote access to an institution’s course and assessment materials.
This clearly defines a VLE but what are the benefits of a VLE and more importantly, how will a VLE benefit our school?'
