  • A virtual learning environment (VLE) is a software system designed to support teaching and learning in an educational setting, as distinct from a Managed Learning Environment, (MLE) where the focus is on management. A VLE will normally work over the Internet and provide a collection of tools such as those for assessment (particularly of types that can be marked automatically, such as multiple choice), communication, uploading of content, return of students&apos; work, peer assessment, administration of student groups, collecting and organizing student grades, questionnaires, tracking tools, etc. New features in these systems include wikis, blogs, RSS and 3D virtual learning spaces.
  • The term &quot;wiki&quot; comes from the Hawaiian phrase, &quot;wiki wiki,&quot; which means &quot;super fast.&quot; I guess if you have thousands of users adding content to a Web site on a regular basis, the site could grow &quot;super fast.&quot;
