Janice Mc Nelis

Abstract


The use of Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) as training platforms has brought about a new way of delivering education and training to individuals, academic institutions and organisations. Learning that is facilitated through the use of VLEs is commonly referred to as eLearning. A well designed VLE will enhance its effectiveness, and this in conjunction with appropriate implementation and evaluation tools is integral to the overall success of the VLE.A well designed eLearning course will be better complemented through the provision of a well-designed VLE. This study examines VLEs and their usefulness as a training platform in a construction based organisation.
