Key Principles of using a VLE for Blended Learning

Designing a programme of study that is delivered through a blended learning approach needs lots of thought on many levels. There are many ways of approaching this task but this toolbox is designed as a concise review of key tools and methods that could be useful to colleagues who are having to make a swift transition from more traditional class-based teaching methods to a greater use of online tools and methods.

The video below contains my thoughts on some of the key principles in using a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) such as Moodle to make the shift towards a blended learning approach. Other pages in this toolbox are more focussed on the tools that can be used in conjunction with these key principles.
