    Does it have to be descriptive? Moodle doesn't explain what it does, but is a nice word and has become known as a vle.

    If I had my choice, I'd call it Bob.

    I dunno, Bob seems more like a server to me. Maybe Fred, or Murray.

    She has asked if i can come up with a new name for The Learning Platform, she said she does not like it being called that as it is boring so wondered if i could come up with something different.

    She knows of another school who call there's "The Learning Hub" so wants to do the same.

    So do you have any idea's on what we could call our "Learning Platform"

    James.
    Thats what TAFE calls it libraries over here, and i never really got the point of the name since it's not really a hub just a book sorting service :shiftyeyes: and a couch provider, our VLE is called MyTAFE, yes... very original (but whats the point of naming a blackboard install that everyone hates).

    Our course management system (moodle), social networking platform (drupaled), email system (zimbra) are collectively known and the "online learning community" OLC

    The reason they are called Learning Platforms goes back to the Becta functional specs and now used by Partnership for schools in BSF. It was to stop the confusion between, vle, mle and so on.

    I guess you will be moving to your BSF providers LP in the near future, so why bother naming it.

    I dont mind it being called Learning Platform, as that is what we use SharePoint for, and TALMOS is obviously our Learning Enviroment.

    She is just one of those people who have crazy minds I dont have a problem with it being called something different as a whole but i dont have a very good mind for naming things unless it's servers

    Which is why i asked here, but i kind of knew i would get the above replys they made me and my boss smile but i just dont know how she and the dep head will take it... to be honest they might not even catch on to the fact what they abriviate to

    Why not something simple...

    "Central"

    or "The Hub"

    KISS applies...

    Web Accelerator for New Knowledge

    (stretching it a bit, I know)

    On a more serious note, you need to put together one of these:

    study work school learning skills knowledge

    with one of these:

    web space portal hub grid centre zone connect direct

    then stick one of these in front of it:

    e i i- e-

    Then mess around with the capitalisation to your preference.

    Bingo, you're good to go!
