Synopsis

Learning and Teaching with Virtual Learning Environments by Helena Gillespie, Helen Boulton, Alison Hramiak, Richard Williamson

Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) are becoming increasingly common in schools, and it is important for trainees to be equipped with the necessary skills and understanding to use them effectively to enhance learning. This book takes a thematic approach, examining all the key issues from designing and creating a VLE to using one to organise, moderate and assess pupil learning and even to develop resources for learning.
