WebLearn is a web-based Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), which can be used to both support and enhance teaching and learning. WebLearn enables University members with very little web experience to set up a structured web site and provide an excellent resource for their students and so to focus their electronic teaching and learning activity. Once you have an Oxford username it's easy to login and start using WebLearn where you'll discover the many tools available in WebLearn ranging from on-line assessment and assignment submission (with optional plagiarism detection) to markbook tools to tutorial sign-up sheets to a resources area where documents and multimedia files can be stored, protected and searched. Departments wishing to make use of Weblearn can contact the WebLearn team for advice. University members may like to attend a training course or take a look at the Step-by-Step tool guides and the 'Least you need to know' guides all available within the Weblearn Guidance site.
