Opinions on different VLEs
VLEs. Everyone's on about them now and I'm no different at the moment. The boss has asked me to investigate a few of the commercial VLE's.
The current list is looking like this:
Netmedia Educations (netmedia-ed.co.uk)
RM VLE (rm.com)
Pearson Education (pearsonpheonix.com)
Basically what i am after is any comments from people whether the VLE in their experience was good/bad and what they thought was good/bad about them.
We could perhaps build a small discussion regarding the VLEs out there and keep all the details together, like some sort of crib sheet?
Anyway i digress. The sort of thing we are after is a VLE that can be tweaked to a style of our liking, whilst still maintaining a simplicity for a primary school to use. I had a look at Moodle but it seems very rigid in respect to it's theming abilities. We need the framework of the VLE to be flexible in the way that the younger (Reception) kids could have a more simplified layout than the Year 6 kids.
I am in the process of looking into DrupalEd as it does seem a bit more flexible in its theming.
Thanks in advance for any feedback
