Virtual Learning Environment are now taking some jobs of teachers, they are used as a supplement to a student so that he doesn’t require a second teacher. Also the fact that it can be accessed at any time and have most of the syllabus within the website, it means that many teachers don't even have to work as hard anymore! They in essence only have to teach you the very few parts that the website doesn’t cover, and mark essays they set you! XD
