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.
An upgraded virtual learning environment
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.
