E-learning is 'the use of information and communications technology (ICT) to enhance and/or support learning'. Currently, e-learning is primarily delivered through the University's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) maintained by IT Services.
The UoM VLE is a web-based learning environment which provides tutors with a range of tools to support students with their studies. The UoM VLE contains study-unit areas that are only accessible to students who are registered to the respective study-units on SIMS (Student Information Management System).
This website is designed to help and support academic staff and students with the use of the UoM VLE.
