It's that time of the week again when we add yet another e-learning / educational technology term to our vocabulary. For this week's terminology, let's talk about the Virtual Learning Environment or VLEs.
A virtual learning environment takes the place of the "functions" of a physical school or university in the online sphere. When we hear the term, "VLE" the first thought that comes into mind is a virtual classroom. VLEs can be more than that. Let's find out what they can do for us and how they can help us (and our learners) in learning.
Here's a short video from our friends over at Unilica explaining the advantages of VLEs and what their VLE can do. Cheers!
