WebLearn is what is known as a ‘virtual learning environment’, but it can also be used for research, collaboration and administration. WebLearn offers various ‘tools’ to facilitate communication, file sharing and the provision of information or particular items of content.
Jill Fresen has helpfully provided some extra information from her talk:
The blog post at http://blogs.it.ox.ac.uk/adamweblearn/2014/01/weblearn-and-turnitin-report-oct-2013-jan-2014/ describes recent upgrades to WebLearn, as well as new features that will be coming over the summer with the move to Sakai 10. In particular, the ‘neo-portal’ refers to the completely redesigned user interface which will make navigation easier and offer other great improvements.
I referred briefly to the personal space that every Oxford user has in WebLearn: My Workspace. When logged in, a user can click on the ‘My Workspace’ tab at the top right of the screen. The main page of My Workspace describes what it offers, with a selection of pre-defined tools on the left hand menu. There are video clips and a step-by-step guide on the Guidance site offering more details about My Workspace.
