Using a VLE

An interesting article from Ben Solly discussed some of the benefits and pitfalls surrounding the use of a VLE in schools.  Ben suggests 10 features:

  1. Senior leadership ‘buy-in’
  2. Staff training
  3. Visual appeal
  4. Make staff log on
  5. Single sign on
  6. High-quality content
  7. Involve all the school stakeholders
  8. Performance management
  9. Embed free online web tools
  10. Creating a paperless working environment

Critically (IMHO) is discusses why it’s important that this is done in a sustainable way rather than leaving it to the enthusiasm of one or two individuals.

If your VLE is not developing as much as you would like (or if you have yet to really get started) then this short article is worth a read.
