A virtual learning environment (VLE), or learning platform, is an electronic educational technology (also called e-learning) education system based on the Web that models conventional in-person education by providing equivalent virtual access to classes, class content, tests, homework, grades, assessments, and other external resources such as academic or museum website links. It is also a social space where students and teacher can interact through threaded discussions or chat.
A VLE can include students and teachers “meeting” online through a synchronous web-based application. The teacher is able to present lessons through video, presentations, or chatting. The students are able to talk with other students and the teacher, as well as collaborate with each other, answer questions, or pose questions. They can use the tools available through the application to virtually raise their hand, send messages, or answer questions on the screen given by the teacher or student presenter.
We hope our VLE will increase student, staff and parent engagement by improving communication and collaboration within your school.
A good VLE or learning platform makes it easier for teachers to share content with their students, stay in touch and set and collect homework and other assessments. It should provide access to school material from anywhere, on any device, helping to support independent learning and continuity in case of school closure - a key skill of the future for our pupils.
