WebLearn-Related Projects

Various WebLearn-related projects are bringing changes to WebLearn and facilitating long-term developments in support of the University's Digital Education Strategy. The projects form an important part of the effort to provide the University with a virtual learning environment (VLE) that provides academics and students with the best possible experience and functionality.

While some of the projects will support teaching and learning in the current academic year (2016/17), the VLE Review -- the first of its kind at Oxford for seven years -- is part of a longer-term strategic approach to implementing the Digital Education Strategy. The review is taking place throughout 2016/17. It follows the WebLearn 11 upgrade, which will ensure that the latest version of WebLearn can be compared with other leading VLE platforms, against Oxford's requirements.  

Further information was provided at the WebLearn User Group meeting on 27 June 2016 and the sections below contain more details. In addition, you can request a consultation with one of our learning technologists. Contact us: weblearn@it.ox.ac.uk
