  3. 3. INTRODUCTION Application of various tools of information technology has opened new vistas for education and this has lead to a highly innovational and technology saving concept of virtual learning classroom.
  4. 4. MAJOR COMPONENTS  Administrative information about the course : prerThe course syllabus  equisites,credits,registration,payments,and contact information for the instructor  A notice board for currenr information about the ongoing course  Self –assessment quizzes or analogous device, normaly scored automatically
  5. 5. PURPOSE  Content management creation, storage, access to and use of learning resources  Curriculum mapping and planning –lesson planning, assessment and personalisation of the learning experience  Communication and collaboration-emails ,notice,chat,wikis,blogs  Learner engagement and administration managed access to learner information and resources and tracking of progress and achievement
  6. 6. JUSTIFICATION Institutions of higher and further education use VLEs in order to : 1. Economize on the time of teaching staff ,and the cost of instruction 2. Provide instruction to student in a flexible manner to students with varying time and location constraints 3. Provide for the reuse of common material among different courses
  7. 7. CONTROVERSY Both supporters and critics of virtual learning environments recognize the importance of development of 21st century skill such as cultural and global awareness ,self direction,creativity,communication, however ,the controversy lies in whether or not virtual learning environments are practical for both teacher and students
  8. 8. Virtual learning environment enable many 21st century skills, 1. Self – direction: students are able to work at their own pace 2. Information and communication technology literacy 3. Time management
  9. 9. Standards  Most VLEs support the Shareable Content Objects Reference Model (SCORM) as a standard, but there are no commonly used standards that define how the learners performance within a course can be transferred from one VLE to another.  There are also standards for sharing contents such as those defined by the IMS Global Conortium.
  10. 10. Assessment  Educators need bench mark tools to access a virtual learning environment as a viable means of education.  Walker developed a survey instrument known as a distance Education learning Environment Survey (DELES), which is accessible to students anywhere
