  • 7. The Problem with VLEs!!023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com
  • 8. What is a VLE?• Virtual Learning Environment• Utopian dream of packaged learning(!)• Is it a drop box?• Is it a communication device?• Is it a magic ‘teaching’ box (eLearning)?• Essentially it is a platform to disseminate learning resources to students023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com
  • 9. What we had (2005-2011)… Blackboard v.9.2023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com
  • 10. What we have established (so far!) SharePoint +023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com WordPress
  • 11. What a ‘VLE’ means to usAcademic ‘Jump Point’ for studentsCentralised Repository for Learning Resources – a place for staff to ‘publish’ contentMaking Announcements to year groups023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com
  • 12. Aspects of a ‘VLE’ we don’t use☒ Annual Recycle – we update the same areas☒ Assessment – we record/publish grades through our student records system☒ SCORM-based learning packages or ‘eLearning’ – we are primarily a studio-based institution023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com
  • 13. The roots of the VLE problem• Boxed approach: 1 size fits all• Lack of (easy) development• Isolated (separate from other systems)• Not in tune with today’s cornucopia of social media, searchability etc• Overly complex - too many (archaic) tools• Cost023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com
  • 14. Why we chose SharePoint• We originally wanted a DMS…• …but it provided us with platform to develop more: – Gateway/portal to other resources – Centralized Platform (Single Sign On) – Improve Business efficiencies023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com
  • 15. Sign in…?023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com

  • 19. Implementation at AUCB• Minimal Stake Holder involvement – Key individuals from departments – Board level agreement around DMS – Quiz course leaders to establish what should replace Blackboard023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com
  • 20. Phased Approach• Preparation: – Active Directory – spring clean! – ISA – firewalls to keep content internal and utilise as SSO mechanism023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com
  • 21. Phased Approach• Phase One: – Student Portal – Staff Portal – DMS – Single Sign On – Email, Student Records etc – Course Blogs (WordPress) – RSS feeds acting as announcements; pages as media publishing023 8097 0968 www.spedutech.com
