    If you want Becta's answer:

    Learning platform is a framework of tools that work seamlessly together to deliver a student centric learning experience by unifying educational theory & practice, technology and content
    Although most people use them as the same way my understanding was a learning platform is more of the backend. Other apps run ontop of it. A VLE is an app as such. (As per Becta's one, a VLE is one of those tools that runs on a learning platform)

    But generically they're used as the same meaning
