February 2007 | 112 pages | Learning Matters
Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) are becoming increasingly common in schools, and it is important for trainees to be equipped with the necessary skills and understanding to use them effectively to enhance learning. This book takes a thematic approach, examining all the key issues from designing and creating a VLE to using one to organise, moderate and assess pupil learning and even to develop resources for learning.
Teaching and learning using a VLE: Blending face-to-face and virtual learning
Learning objects
Talk, chat and discussion: Communications in virtual learning
Electronic portfolios: Outcomes for virtual learning
Tasks, tests and feedback
Design issues: How to design virtual learning
Introducing a VLE into a school
Appendix: Installing Moodle on a Windows Machine

"Excellent - easy to read, accessible, well laid-out and bang up to date" (Lead Practitioner, Cornwall College)

This has been helpful in introducing VLEs to new students and also for giving tutors interesting ideas for our VLE.
