Coracle’s Virtual Learning Environment (Osprey-VLE) is more than just an online learning platform.
It’s a way of life: a digital approach to perform skills gap analysis, to access course materials and complete course assessments, evaluation and self-reflection tasks.
It’s a journey: a suite of tools brought together to deliver an engaging and motivational tool. From content management, online assessment, data analytics and individual learning plans through to managed hosting, any device access and multilingual capabilities, we believe there’s more to learning than a simple certificate at the end.
It’s a solution: a fast-track route to delivering on your goals. We’ve spent over a decade working on your questions.
Osprey-VLE is a cloud-based platform based on the educational technique of scaffolding and the theory of informed by activity, whereby data is collected in the form of activity statements. Within Osprey-VLE we call this the Learning Line: you can think of it as a digital wallet for your learning journey. Anyone familiar with the timeline on social media sites such as Facebook or LinkedIn will intuitively feel at home with the Learning Line.
Coracle work with your subject matter experts to pull together content from many sources, including written text and a range of multi-media files. We utilise qualitative data analysis techniques and provide context to complex content. In the meantime, our clever software converts large document files into eLearning formats to suit your needs.
Apps for smartphones and tablets that integrate with the Osprey-VLE provide everyone with the option of learning, even whilst offline. Coracle’s dedicated team are experts in designing apps that engage and motivate your learners.
The Learning Line
The Learning Line allows a user to know exactly what they have done within a course, to comment on each statement or flag up a statement/page that they wish to come back to in the future and to share statements with moderators.
