#VLE4DIT About this project The Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) currently in use at DIT is Blackboard, which we refer to locally as Webcourses. Our contract with Blackboard comes to an end in August 2019 and this gives us all an opportunity now to reflect on our requirements for a VLE as we develop further our Digital Campus and strive to create a unique, engaged, powerful and comprehensive experience for every student.


The purpose of this website is to support the #VLE4DIT project. The remit of the project is to ascertain what you want, and need, out of a virtual learning environment so that the best fit possible for your changing needs can be selected.
