  • The college currently uses a Blackboard-based virtual learning environment and wants to explore how they might develop in future using more Web 2.0 tools. The college wants to offer a more personalised learning experience. In doing this they also want to build on students’ personal use of Web 2.0 tools in social networking and other activities. The new online environment will also have to provide for networking with staff and with employers.
