1.2 Learning Online

VLEs can be used to support learning by sharing digital resources. These can be documents, sound files, presentations, videos and images.  Resources can by made available to support students learning during college and outside college.  Students can also share their work with their teacher or fellow students for feedback.

 To see a video overview:
To support this process we have three features of ‘Learning Online’ for our VLE at Honiton.
1) Unit Pages
Each unit of work has a page on the website for sharing learning resources with students. This could include Project Briefs, Learning Objectives, Tasks, Key Words, Assessment Criteria and any other digital media required for the unit.

2) Class Page
Each class in college will have a home page. This allows teachers to share homework with students, set up class forums and create tasks for students. These tasks will be allocated to all the students in the class. If appropriate students can see each other work and give feedback to their friends.

3) E-Portfolio
Each student has an E-Portfolio area of the website where they can create web pages and share resources with our college community. Hopefully some students will use this to support their learning independently of their teachers.
