The Virtual Learning Environments Complete Certification Kit is the most complete guide for anyone looking to gain an understanding of Virtual Learning Environments and its practical application in an IT and Non-IT environment.

Description

This Virtual Learning Environments Certification Course would be beneficial to education professionals looking to implement VLE, manage VLE students, and learn more about VLE systems, software, and tools.

 

The course would also be of interest to educators and students wanting to learn about the benefits and uses of VLE technology and implementation, and businesses wanting to implement VLE into their training procedures.


What will you learn?

  • Learn the important concepts, benefits, tools, and uses of VLE. 
  • Learn about the benefits of implementing VLE systems into your training and learning procedures.
  • Examine VLE websites, software, and management systems.
  • Review available eLearning educational software. 


Each course in the core series includes a certification upon successful completion. Explore the latest online education technology trend known as Virtual Learning Environments (VLE). Investigate the ways VLE implementation benefits educators, businesses, trainers, and students alike through eLearning processes. Become a valued member of your organization by learning the benefits and advantages of implementing VLE systems and software into any educational environment. 


Course Outline


The topics covered in this course are: 

  • Introduction to Virtual Learning Environments
  • Evolution of Virtual Learning Environments
  • Overview of Web-based Educational Websites
  • Overview of Web-based Learning Management Systems
  • Overview of eLearning Educational Software
  • Overview of Learning Management Systems
  • Alternative Virtual Learning Environment Systems

A Virtual Learning Environment or learning platform is an online education system that replicates conventional teaching methods by providing an educational equivalent via virtual access to classes, assessments, homework, grades, educational content, and additional external resources relevant to the study topic. VLE is typically an integrated component of distance learning, but can also be implemented in an everyday physical learning environment referred to as blended learning. 


This course would benefit education professionals looking to implement VLE, manage VLE students, and learn more about VLE systems, software, and tools. The course would also be of interest to educators and students wanting to learn about the benefits and uses of VLE implementation, and businesses wanting to implement VLE into their training procedures.

This certification validates that you know specific methods, models, and/or tools. This is essential to professionals in order to be updated on the latest IT education trends, and to add to their Virtual Learning Environment toolbox.
