Downing tools for unit 4

We’ve reached Unit 4, which becomes available on Friday 3rd November at 10am UK time. You’ve had a chance to experience, try out and reflect on six very different tools so far and it’s been fascinating to read your responses to them in the forums.

In this unit we’ll be taking a break from trying out tools to cast a critical eye at one of the most unloved pieces of technology in higher education – the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

In this unit you’ll have a chance to think about and assess your insititution’s VLE and recommend changes to help improve it.
