Introduction to Virtual Learning Environments
If you have used any of these tools or approaches in your practice, why not share your experiences with other participants? For those of you who would like to see what blended learning could look like in a VLE such as Moodle, we have created a Moodle Hub for Blended Learning Essentials: Getting Started and have begun to create sample learning activities in it. The Moodle Hub is hosted on UCLeXtend and you will need to create an account to see the course. If you like what you see, and want to use the activities and adapt them to your own context, then you can download each Moodle activity as a back-up file and upload it to your own version of Moodle in your college or organisation. After that, you can edit the activity to replace our content with your own.
Have your say:Choose one of the VLE tools described and critique it in terms of your own teaching practice. How could you use this approach with your students? What do you think the benefits would be to you and your learners?
