WebLearn was upgraded on 6 September 2016 in preparation for the start of Michaelmas term. The latest software fixes and enhancements include improved usability on mobile devices and better tools to support teaching and learning. The WebLearn Upgrade page includes an overview of the changes and Frequently Asked Questions, and full details are contained in the WebLearn blog. The University is now beginning a longer-term initiative to review requirements for its core learning platform. The Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Review will take place over the course of the 2016/17 academic year and forms part of the strategic approach to implementing the University’s Digital Education Strategy. In Michaelmas term, colleagues will be invited to share their experiences of using WebLearn and determine their ongoing needs. The upgraded version of WebLearn will then be evaluated, together with other leading VLE platforms, against Oxford’s requirements. Further information is available on the WebLearn-related projects webpage.
