Overview of features Communication between tutors and students eg email, discussion boards and virtual chat facilities which support various types of communication: synchronous and asynchronous, one-to-one, one-to-many and many-to-many. Self-assessment and summative assessment eg multiple-choice assessment with automated marking and immediate feedback. Delivery of learning resources and materials eg through the provision of learning and teaching materials, images and video clips, links to other web resources, online discussion and assessment activities Shared work group areas Allows designated groups of students to upload and share files as well as communicate with each other. Support for students Could take the form of communication with tutors or other students, provision of supporting materials such as course information and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

Overview of features Management and tracking of students eg usernames and passwords to ensure that only registered students can access the course; analysis of assessment undertaken by students or their use of materials within the VLE. Consistent and customisable look and feel A standard user interface that is easy for students to understand and use. Courses can be individualised with colours, graphics and logos – but the essential mode of use remains constant. Source: LTSN, Ros O’Leary: Virtual Learning Environments Navigation structure Structured delivery of information supported by a standard navigation toolbar. Most VLE software assumes that students will work their way through linear sequences of instructional material. Others are more flexible and will accommodate alternative information structures, eg multi-path case studies.

Management and tracking of students
