Indian School Board launches VLE portal

MUSCAT: The Board of Indian Schools in Oman has launched a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) portal to enable its schools to have state-of-the-art learning management system and network to share learning resources and develop interactive contents, including videos.
This is expected to empower teachers to create virtual classrooms by allowing students to access learning resources and interactive videos.
The portal, isovle.net, was inaugurated by Dr Hamoud bin Khalfan al Harthy, Under-Secretary of Education and Curricula, Ministry of Education.
“The ISO VLE portal will serve as an online platform that will enable teachers and students access to the best of our school resources.
“This will also help make best use of global technologies and IT trends,” said Dr Baby Sam Saamuel, Chairman, Indian School Board.
The learning resources and videos of lessons are developed by highly experienced and skilled teachers selected from various Indian Schools.
A VLE coordinator is appointed for every school to coordinate access to the portal for staff and students. Workshops and hands-on training sessions were organised for the subject
coordinators, VLE coordinators and the Principals of Indian Schools.
The portal is hosted on a powerful virtual private server that can allow multiple concurrent users. As the portal is fully responsive, it can also be accessed via different devices like smartphones (Android or iPhones), tablets or PCs.
Hundreds of videos and learning resources are available for the students’ access from their home.
