Work in the field of Learning Platforms (Virtual Learning Environments) is becoming more and more frequent make up of Cleveratom (2006-2011)’s evolving portfolio of projects.
We’re doing more and more work advisory work in both the design of physical and virtual spaces for learning, and we understand what needs to happen to make both physical and virtual work together.
Every school must have a VLE by the end of 2008 and we’ve recently been enjoying working with schools to evaluate where they are in the process…… and work with them and advise on next steps.
Lets be honest here, some schools are getting it wrong, and others are getting it right. We’ve witnessed both and learned some lessons, lessons that we are happy to share.
In January of this year the Yorkshire and Humber Grid for Learning Foundation commissioned Cleveratom (2006-2011) to produce a book and DVD which would help schools to learn from each other what a learning platform actually is, and how schools are using it.

Since the book and DVD launch in Castleford in May (read about it here) we’ve been frequently called upon by schools asking for help and support through the VLE process.
