Abstract

Many tools have been developed to exploit the benefits of the internet or intranet, including packages called virtual learning spaces or virtual learning environments (VLE),1,2 that can support face-to-face classes or even deliver entire courses online. Popular commercial software currently used to build a variety of different VLEs for higher education in the United Kingdom includes Blackboard (www.blackboard.com/) and WebCT (www.webct.com/). Typically, these web-based products provide a set of tools that allow instructors to upload learning material and put in place various communication links and feedback resources in a customised format.
