Virtual Learning Environment
One of the most important resources we provide students with, is our Virtual Learning Environment or VLE, an online learning platform where students can access materials, video lessons, formative and summative assessment, information on each aspect of their learning experience, contact details, and so on.
Distance learners have access to an upgraded version of the VLE, with chat room and forum features, Personal Page where students can access scores, assessment information, link to TurnItIn, feedback, reading materials, video lessons that make up for traditional lecturers, online seminars, databases and e-journal subscriptions, and much more. TurnItIn will offer students a secure and fast way to check their original work for grammar errors and against plagiarism.
Face-2-face students also benefit from access to our VLE, however they will be able only to access their Personal Page with information on current and past modules, contact details, overall continuous assessment scores, and a Programme Board where they are informed about the latest news. Assessment will be uploaded on TurnItIn or other online resources to get marked.
To access your VLE Personal Page, a student must login at elearning.nciul.co.uk using username and password provided at registration.
