June 9, 2011 - PRLog -- SilkWeb is proud to announce the launch of its VLE development services. A virtual learning environment provides a collaborative environment where students are encouraged to privately or publicly discuss and exchange thoughts and ideas, to complete assignments and prepare to answer questions directly to their instructors and peers.
At the heart of the virtual learning environment is the type of activities that can be created and how completion of those activities can be tracked. SilkWeb offers a great VLE solution with its use of activities and interactive resource tools such as polling, shared glossary, journal, lessons, self-quiz, self-assessment, wikis, and peer review workshop modules. SilkWeb also offers traditional assessment types such as essays, quizzes, midterms, and final exams that are the perfect complement to your custom virtual learning environment.
