This is the second of a series of publications from the Flexible Delivery Enhancement Theme. Recognising the integral and growing role played by the virtual learning environment (VLE) in the flexible delivery of higher education (HE), this publication aimed to:
  • identify patterns of VLE use, and common experiences of a positive or negative nature
  • develop an overview of this aspect of flexible delivery in the Scottish HE context, to enable benchmarking by individual users, teachers, managers and other stakeholders
  • contribute to the sum of knowledge and best practice in VLE development in the Scottish HE sector, identifying norms and trends and, where possible, to inform future investment in learning technology.
It contains a report on an evaluation of the use of the virtual learning environment in higher education across Scotland and two case studies (‘Use of CAA in molecular science 1A September – December 2003’ by Dr Linda Morris and ‘The SCHOLAR programme in Scotland’ by Professor Phillip John, Heriot-Watt University)
