Virtual learning environment
Throughout your studies you will be using a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) such as Learn or Moodle. These online learning platforms allow course materials to be shared online with you as well as supporting collaboration and assessment activities.
Connecting with your virtual learning environment
Throughout your studies you will be using a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) such as ‘Learn’ or ‘Moodle’. These online learning environments enable you to access all your course materials.
The type of VLE you will use will vary depending on your programme but you will have access to your VLE in advance of your start date.
There is no expectation that you will be fully competent in using this platform in advance.
A few weeks before the programme commences, you will receive an email inviting you to familiarise yourself with your VLE and the digital resources. Keep a look out for this email. If you haven’t received the email a week before the programme commences, then contact your programme team directly.
