Extending the learning environment
Technology has changed the classroom experience both for teachers and students. Students can check facts during a lecture from their mobile phones and the seminar room itself could be an entirely virtual space or a state-of-the-art connected classroom. Virtual learning environments (VLEs) have become an essential part of almost every higher and further educational institution.
Many institutions are reviewing their current virtual learning environment provision in the light of changing pedagogical requirements, improved administrative integration and the emergence of new classes of social media on the wider web.
Whether you are reviewing your learning and teaching strategies, want to streamline your admin processes, respond to student feedback or simply provide better quality support for smaller groups within your institution, this JISC briefing paper will help inform any review process.
