Title: Virtuous learning environments: the library and the VLE
Authors: MacColl, John
Keywords: Education
Issue Date: 2001
Citation: MacColl, J. 2001. Virtuous learning environments: the library and the VLE. Program: electronic library and information systems, 35(3): 227-239
Abstract: This paper describes the growing use of virtual learning environments (VLE) in learning and teaching in UK higher education. The distinction between content management and its presentation by web delivery systems is discussed. The way in which academic libraries should be involved in the development of these environments is explored with reference to Project ANGEL - a project funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). Overlap between virtual learning environments and electronic reserve systems in libraries is discussed in the context of the requirement that academic libraries assert their role as resource information managers in their institutions. Discharging this function will require genuine partnership between academic librarians and course tutors, and a fuller integration of the library into the course creation and delivery processes.
