eLearning #PLE #VLE #ILS #Virtual Worlds #SCORM #LMS. We've always been a little acronym happy in the world of online learning. The inevitable explosion of web technologies has led to a mangled pile of nearly incomprehensible acronyms swimming around in many of today's trendiest headlines and articles. So what is all this stuff about, and why all the hype / excitement etc. around the latest wave of acronyms? Whats new

Is your VLE cognitive?

As I recall, it was at least few ago now that I first started to hear the term Student Analytics banded around in the corridors of eLearning, around the time of the 2012 Horizon Report.

Online courses must die!

E-Learning Provocateur

Occupying a place on the continuum somewhere between a VLE and a PLE, an ILE is an informal learning environment that a facilitator manages on behalf of a group of learners. Unlike a VLE, an ILE is strictly informal. A touch dramatic, isn’t it?

Moodle Journal

Going by the transactions from the latest learning trial using Moodle, here at Bromley I feel certain that I will be looking at another successful outcome. There were 23 students taking part of which only 16 eventually completed the project and between them accounted for over 12,000 transactions in four weeks.

Using Moodle as a VLE

Moodle Journal

My own presentation came under the theme of transforming teaching and learning and featured a recent trial that I conducted with level 4 students in an attempt to realise the Social Constructive potential of Moodle as a VLE. I went along to the Moodle RUG on the 17th in London, which turned out to be a superb event. Martin Dougiamas was live on Skype, excellent workshops and a particularly inspiring presentation from the OU.

Promoting the Moodle VLE

Moodle Journal

The first meeting of the Virtual Learning was held and went extremely well. We agreed on some dates for awareness sessions and training. The newsletter was circulated to the group and in the absence of any objections was sent around to all mailboxes in the first instance, though it did prove necessary to also include a reminder for booking via email. One point for future reference however is to include anything you really want noticed on the front page, should be obvious really

Got me thinking about the opacity of some VLE systems. I have not seen a single VLE system yet that works so transparently that students think more about their learning than they do about how to make the damn VLE work. I took my wife and son to see the animals yesterday.

Totara: re-shaping Moodle for corporate use

Clive on Learning

A typical VLE is designed to support formal academic courses, whether face-to-face, online or blended. So it has been more than a little surprising to me over the past few years to see Moodle, an open-source VLE, used so enthusiastically by corporates. Last week I asked Can the ‘big LMS’ break clear of formal training? - I wanted to know whether Saba, one of the most successful of the big LMSs, could reinvent itself to accommodate informal learning.

The past tense of open badges

That would give the student a sense of accomplishment while in the midst of a multi-year program, and I imagine showcasing one’s backpack on the university’s VLE would become rather competitive. Some commentators are heralding open badges as the nemesis of the college degree.

Encouraging more of a user-generated and peer-to-peer learning environment may not be to everyone’s taste so a VLE such as Moodle will give more control. Last week, Laura Layton-James stumbled upon my post Online courses must die! and she left a wonderfully detailed comment.
