EdTechRoundUp Special on Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs)

ETRU SpecialThis ETRU Special was co-hosted by Dai Barnes and Doug Belshaw. We’ve been discussing Virtual Learning Environments and Learning Platforms on-and-off for weeks now, so the time had come to have the chance to invite some experts in and have a lengthier discussion. We talked to Jeff O’Hara (@zemote), co-founder of Edmodo, discussed the various options when it comes to integrating a VLE, and some ideas for best practice. We finished with approaches for getting all staff onboard when deploying a VLE institution-wide. 🙂

Many thanks to Sinclair Mackenzie for grabbing the audio from the FlashMeeting!
