Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)
A Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is a system for delivering learning materials to students via the web. These systems include assessment, student tracking, collaboration and communication tools. They can be accessed both on and off-campus, meaning that they can support students’ learning outside the lecture hall 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This enables us to teach not only traditional full-time students but also those who cannot regularly visit the campus due to geographic or time restrictions, e.g. those on distance learning courses, doing evening classes, or workers studying part-time. VLEs are also known as Course Management Systems (CMS) and Learning Management Systems (LMS), among other names.
All of these courses are supported by our virtual learning environment (VLE), which will accelerate your learning and enhance your experience of the course. You will be able to download course materials, contact your tutors and talk to fellow students via the web at a time and place that’s convenient to you.
You will also be provided with a Blue Sky Campus student card for the period of your study, giving access to Campus facilities, such as the Library, other services and concessions. Plus you’ll retain access to the learning resources for your course on Blue Sky Online.
