A new look for Learn VLE

The University is upgrading the online system students use to access course materials, assignments, grades and other resources.

Learn VLE – the University’s student virtual learning environment – will be upgraded to give you a more streamlined, easy-to-use system where it is easier to engage with key information across all of your courses. 

The system will be unavailable on Tuesday 28 June 2022, between 9:00 and 17:00, while the configuration is completed.

The upgraded system brings a new and simplified layout that is both mobile friendly and more accessible.

New tools such as Profile, Activity Stream, Courses, Calendar, and Marks will allow you to do more.

  • Make it personal: Within the Profile feature you will be able to add your pronouns and clarify the pronunciation of your name through phonetic spelling and audio recording.
  • Get a heads-up: The Activity Stream feature will keep you up-to-date on all your deadlines and important upcoming course events, with dynamic links to the courses in question.
  • Stay on schedule: The Calendar tool gives a combined view of important deadlines and dates from across all course calendars, making it easier to plan ahead.
  • Keep track: The Marks feature gives you a quick overview across all your marks and allows your teachers to see what marking needs to be done.

A series of videos are now available to help you get to know the new features.
