How some of us feel about new technologies


  • Why use a VLE?

  • How do we learn to use it?

  • Are there disadvantages to using a VLE?

Virtual Learning Environment (VLEs or LMSs)


Static  interactive


  • Additional software for creating formative and summative quizzes

  • Podcasting equipment and software

  • Plagiarism detection software/systems

  • Handheld voting systems

  • Synchronous conferencing /videoconferencing systems

  • Blogs and or wikis

Using more than just moodle


  • Encourage your students to actually engage with the content you are uploading or even engage in the creation of the content themselves.

Designing online activities in English Studies


  • Example: ‘Fin de Siècle Online Experience’

  • What would you do?

Developing good practice


  • Designing online tasks is analogous to designing small group work

  • Do include prompting questions and specific tasks

  • Encourage research and discussion of research (not just grabbing data)

Effective design


  • Make sure instructions are available to students on how to access and participate in the forums or individual activities.

  • Make discussion a stated aim for activities and reinforce this through repetition (we often specify minimum numbers of postings and replies per activity).

  • See as students see: make sure instructions and questions are clear, unambiguous, and jargon-free.

  • Be creative – take advantage of the multimedia possibilities of online discussion by embedding images and illustrations, audio- or video-clips, in the environments you are working with.

Good practice


  • Effective use of virtual learning environments – this very useful info kit from the JISC provides a great deal of information about getting started with VLEs

  • The English Subject Centre’s E-learning Case Studies– these case studies provide a window into innovative teaching practice in English departments across the UK

  • The English Subject Centre’s E-Learning projects – There are many project reports on the English Subject Centre website that mention the benefits of VLEs
