ELearning has become essential for learning and teaching over the past number of years. In the mainly practice based course of Textile Art, Design and Fashion the VLE is blended with face to face teaching. Blackboard Learn is essential for the consolidation of the learning, to ensure all students have current and up-to-date information. The use of Blackboard Learn is undoubtedly now such a part of supporting and enhancing the student experience it would be impossible to deliver the key teaching and learning strategies without this platform. Blackboard learn supports a range of diverse learners and enables non-traditional learners to engage in Higher Education. The VLE supports students individual learning needs and this paper will discuss the success of this even in a workshop or manufacturing based subject and how key aspects of Blackboard learn are utilised within the course to support the learning and teaching for successful outcomes.
