Today’s article goes back to the origins of my career in blogging. When somebody asks me how I got started I usually tell him or her that it was really quite accidental. Based on having a successful tutoring business online I soon got so many questions from fellow tutors and online educators about how to establish their own online presence that it really made more sense to put my thoughts and advice out there in form of a blog than to answer each question in an individual email.
And that’s exactly what makes the basis for this article, a question by a fellow tutor tweeting at me and asking whether I could give him some examples of virtual learning environments to use for his courses based on my previous writing about the virtual learning environment (VLE) / learning management system (LMS) or simply put learning platforms.
