The Dentistry VLE supports the MSc, PgCert and PgDip in Primary Dental Care.
It is one of a number of bespoke VLEs commissioned by academic programmes within the University. In common with many of the bespoke VLEs, it provides a highly customised user experience, with a strong sense of programme branding, but has not been built in a resilient manner. Although supported by second line support teams during standard office hours, it is not classed as High Priority in the University Disaster Recovery Classification.
The University has 2 centrally provided VLEs: Blackboard Learn and Moodle. Both these services are supported by IS and have user groups allowing colleagues who use the services input in to how they are developed. They are classed as High Priority in the University Disaster Recovery Classification and benefit from the highest level of relsilience with infrastructure located in both the University's main hosting sites.
As a result of the review undertaken by the VLE Consolidation Project (TEL038), the decision has been taken to replace the bespoke Clinical Dentistry VLE with the centrally provided Blackboard Learn VLE and this project is to complete this migration.
