These any good?
Now I'm not asking anyone to go out of their way and start photoshopping up a full set of logos for me here, because I'm not that cheeky. But... if anyone has a pack of logos that they use for the subjects on their VLE (English, Maths etc.) that are fairly unified in appearance, would you mind awfully posting them up for me to steal? Our VLE working group are demonstrating the VLE to faculties for the first time tonight and I want it to look as SHINY and IMPRESSIVE as possible, and I've not had time to photoshop up some Web 2.0ish icons yet for various reasons, so if someone can save my posterior for me here, I'd be endlessly grateful!
As I said - don't go out of your way to make something for my poorly-time-managed self, but if you have something anyway and it will only take you a few minutes to zip them up and post them, then help a brother out!

Don't suppose you could add to that an icon which could be used to represent the library?
Just to get you started ;-) this poped up at just the right time as were putting subject icons on our moodle server
Health & Social Care
i-Enquire (Year 7 English, Maths, history, Geography and IT blended together)
Travel & Tourism
You're a star sysman, a legend as ever. +Rep!
And for what it's worth, subjects we have listed are:
Design & Technology
I'll try and fill in the gaps myself today in which case I'll add them in here for oyu steal ideas/steal outright, but as I doubt they'll be up to your standards I won't be offended if they need redoing!
Cheers again, you're Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus, FACT
Its a bit cheeky, but can i ask for some icons too/non subject ones...?
Thanks in advance!
Here are some icons we commissioned. Please feel free to use them under a creative commons copyright for non commercial use. We are not able to create any new ones though.

I put these together for our VLE. Any good??
Right, I've had a bit of a play in Photoshop to fill my blanks, and I've recoloured those that sysman gave me as I've themed my layout rather than just having a random mix of colours. There's a zip attached with all the icons at 512x512 PNG, and I've added a preview of the new extra icons along with a preview of how they all look together on my VLE with the fancy colour coding.
So cheers very much sysman - inbetween my servers literally shutting themselves off with no warning (and no complaint from the UPS, weirdly) and my MIS server's performance nosediving, I just about found time to get the page ready for the demonstration to faculties. Hurrah for last-minute-plans!
Cheers to everyone else for chipping in as well - I ran with sysman's as I had them first (and liked the simplicity) but this should hopefully be a useful resource to many for months and years to come.

Did anyone manage to have a crack at some of the non subject icons?
So for I have the following:
- Science - Physics / Chemistry / Biology
- Humanities – History / Geography
- Modern Foreign Languages - French / Spanish / German
- Drama / Performing Arts
- Business / Enterprise
- Religious Education
- Design & Technology
- Travel & Tourism
- Health & Social Care
- IT Support
- Room Booking
- My Site
- Home Drive
- European Computer Driving Licence
Seem about right?
In terms of languages could you add the following
Apart from Welsh, they are done in schools a lot in my area
Also PHSCE (Personal, Health, Social and Citizenship Education)
And Microsoft Academy subject area's would be great - Computer Basics, Internet and World Wide Web, Computer Security and Privacy, Digital Lifestyles, Productivity Programs, and Digital Literacy
If you could add those, that would be absolutely crackin! (I would also chuck a donation your way)
