Enhancing your online learning
Weblearn has some exciting new developments for your online learning
London Met is always seeking new ways to improve the student experience of our virtual learning environment (VLE) – otherwise known as Weblearn. To achieve this the University launched a VLE enhancement project, incorporating feedback received from students, which has resulted in a number of exciting changes and updates to our system.
We have launched a project to make lectures more accessible to students even from outside the lecture room by increasing the availability of recorded lectures for students this year. A large number of lectures across both Level 4 and Level 7 modules have now been recorded and published on Weblearn.
Last year it was announced that we would be implementing anonymous marking for our students as of October 2016. Anonymous marking has now been enabled for online assessment across the University. To find out more about anonymous marking and how it works see our Anonymous Marking page.

We Want Your Feedback
We are continuously working to find new and innovative ways to enhance the VLE and your feedback helps us to do that! The VLE enhancement project runs focus groups with both staff and students to discuss what works with online submissions and what can be improved.
You can get involved in the conversation by joining our focus group or alternatively give us your feedback online.
