Virtual Learning Environment

The VLE Project is a significant and important project for the University to embark upon, and is a cornerstone project of the Digital Campus programme. From the outset, the project will be inclusive for staff and students, recognising that the VLE is a critical system and that the future VLE will be a feature of the University’s provision for a significant period of time, upward of 5 years. A continual strand of engagement work will run throughout all stages of the project, from procurement through to implementation.

The project seeks to select a new VLE with which to enhance learning and teaching, and re-establish itself as a sector leader in innovation in e-learning.

The below project timeline details key milestones in the VLE project. Please visit the VLE Project webpages for more information.
