Virtual Learning Environments
The service pages for the University supported Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs): Learn and Moodle
Learn is the biggest Virtual Learning Environment at the University of Edinburgh, supporting more than 5000 courses annually. Learn provides access to course materials, assignments, grades, feedback, lecture recordings, resource lists and much more. It is used to support face to face teaching, blended learning, and fully online courses.

As part of improving the student digital experience, the University is investing in improvements to our VLEs over the next few years. We invest in our physical teaching spaces to make sure they are highly accessible, easy to use and that we have the capacity we need. The VLE Excellence programme is about making a similar investment in our virtual teaching spaces.
VLE Learning Analytics
Since 2014 Information Services have been exploring some Learning Analytics options within the VLEs. Projects and tools include those which allow students to see some of their own data, to help them understand their activity and learning patterns.
