Learning Platforms vs VLEs

The English Schools Foundation (Hong Kong) have been using their "Learning Platform" since September 2005. They call it a ConnectedLearningCommunity....

"We don’t see the CLC as a VLE or MLE because these suggest an instructional mode of teaching and learning; instead we regard the CLC as an open learning platform into which other Web 2.0 applications can be easily embedded. The CLC extends the learning zone beyond the physical boundaries of the classroom and serves as a bridge to the public social and learning networks in which our students actively participate."

Peter Woodhead is the ICT advisor for the ESF.
