Leeds City College has recently announced that it will be using Moodle as the new cross-college Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) following the merger of three local colleges.
With approximately 60,000 students, Leeds City College is one of the largest Further Eduction Colleges in the United Kingdom. E-learning at the college will be driven forward with a large-scale and heavily customised Moodle installation that will provide 24/7 online learning for all course areas.
According to Lewis Carr, VLE Manager at Leeds City College, "Moodle has already proved itself as an enterprise class VLE but its modular design and flexibility allows us to seamlessly integrate it with other college systems and provide greater interoperability. We are hoping to raise the bar and show the education sector just what is possible with Moodle."
Further details about the college's decision can be found in the press release Leeds City College Chooses Moodle.
