Abstract 

Introduction

The purpose of the action research assignment is use of an Action Research approach in an exploration of the ways to increase students’ engagement in the use of the Colleges Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Moodle.

VLEs or virtual learning environments have been at the forefront of learning technology for much of the 21st century. Forming the back bone of institutional ‘Learning Management Systems’ (LMS); with the commonly accepted driver of this move being the Dearing Report of 1997 and their increased use was encouraged in the Government’s 2005 strategy paper Harnessing technology – transforming learning and children’s services. (Ofsted, 2009).

The rationale behind the research is the perceived decline in the use and student uptake of the VLE by AS Geography Sixth Form students and a national trend in the perceived negative views of VLEs.
