  3. 3. Rational and Purpose of the VLE: In the last 10 years, education has benefited from a real e-revolution with Virtual Learning Environments (VLE), at the heart of their teaching and e-learning programmes. A VLE, or learning platform, is an online system that allows teachers to share educational materials with their pupils via the web. For a student to be able to access a ‘Virtual’ room as either a duplicate or extension of their physical classroom is a clear advantage for learners and teachers alike. The VLE can be used for: Communication – opens up an infinite number of channels in the format of forums, discussion threads, polls, surveys - instant feedback either as a group or individually Producing work – students do not physically have to find their teacher to hand in work due to secure virtual ‘hand-in’ folders that have time windows Resource hub – teachers have infinite online storage space for PowerPoints, documents, worksheets etc. that can either be secure or shared with students Dynamic home pages – teachers have the opportunity to create an exciting virtual space to represent their room/subject Links to outside sources – pathways to all other online learning spaces are linked via the VLE Embedded content – YouTube, BBC, newspapers can all be embedded as the dynamic feed of the homepage Podcasts & videos – both teacher- and student-produced podcasts and videos have a shared platform; again, either secure or shared
  4. 4. The ISB VLE site can be found here: Use you school email login to access the VLE which will take you to the Home Page.
