Abstract:
This paper explores the current use of VLEs within a FE College in order to determine how staff and students are engaging with them as part of teaching and learning strategies. The recent development of personal learning environments (PLEs) is discussed with regard to how these fit within the rapid growth in Web 2.0 technologies. The paper indicates the need for further investigation into alternative solutions to the problem of student engagement and suggests a more student-centred approach involving the creation of appropriate resources to allow students to adapt their learning requirements in a digital media that includes ePortfolios The paper concludes that efforts to improve VLE use have not been successful and since we are experiencing a shift towards the more non-compliant student we need to address the change in a positive way.
