Make the Most of Your VLE
A Complete Guide to Making the Most of Your Virtual Learning Environment
Make the Most of Your Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) or Managed Learning Environment (MLE) is a guide for School, College and Academy Principals, Head teachers, Senior Management Teams, School Leadership Administrators, Directors of Teaching and Learning, School Governors (with focus on Teaching and Learning), Educational Consultants and Teachers to obtain the best of their school’s Virtual Learning Environment.
Government policies (especially in the UK) over the past 5 years have done much to push education towards a more technology-based approach. A significant part of this was the introduction of the VLE. Majority of universities, colleges, secondary and primary schools in the UK and the US now have fully functional VLEs.
The challenge remains though on making use and making the most out of these often expensive investments. It is rare to find a school that uses a VLE as the center of all learning activities and in many schools it remains the sad fact that use of the VLE is limited to a small number of highly technical, highly enthusiastic members of staff.

A Quick Guide to Self-Publishing on Amazon’s Kindle Store
Publish Your E-Book in 5 Easy Steps is a quick guide to formatting and preparing your manuscript for publishing and sale on Amazon’s Kindle Bookstore.
