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.

In particular, 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 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.
