Don't. It'll be a waste of your time creating an application designed to replace in-school VLEs - most schools already have theirs sorted as they have to have one in place by next year, which doesn't give you anywhere near enough time to develope a decent solution. I'd concentrate instead on writing an application of some kind that integrates with VLEs, even if that's just using the same authetication source as the VLE so pupils can log in with their standard usernames and passwords. It'd be nice if data could be written back to VLEs, too, but good luck with actually getting each VLE vendor to cough up an API. That'd be something you could sell to schools - your application and content, all in a nice package that integrates with their VLE.

I know some work being done on this, and I would expect other competitors to follow suit.

I could choose not to show the application itself and just the sub application, or ever sell the whole thing to people to do what they please with it.
Has anyone got any ideas of web applications that they would like to see available?

Shameless, but interesting all the same

Back in 2003 my line manager actually said I wasn't clever enough to write a VLE. Red flag to an IT Monkey.... wrote Virtucoll as my dissertation piece in 3 months fully documented and tested on a variety of platforms.
It's still on Sourceforge though the system is very outdated nowadays.
