Learning Platform Suite

The Learning Platform Suite (LPS) is the collection of technology services that are focused on enhancing and supporting learning, teaching and assessment. Put another way, it is the Suite of digital Platforms to support Learning.  At the core of the LPS lies the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), the platform through which most digital learning and teaching takes place. 
The LPS is developed and maintained by LTE's Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Team.

Technical support and guidance on each of the digital platform tools can be found on the TEL Knowledge Base for Staff
