What is e-Learning?
e-Learning is learning facilitated and supported through the use of Information and
Communication Technology. (JISC, 2004)
JISC’s Effective Practice with e-learning guide would provide for a useful starting point.

What are the e-Learning tools available to me?
Moodle is a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)
which offers a range of tools to support learning and
facilitate collaborative activities online.
The Learning Material Filestore (LMF) is an online
file storage and sharing facility available to all
students and staff at the University of Bath.
Confluence is a tool that allows for the fast, easy Moodle
creation of wiki pages which can be used for
phpBB, an easy to use discussion forum, is suitable
for those who do not require full VLE functionality.
The e-Learning tools website can be found at:
