Learning resources


Moodle is our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This is an online learning tool which gives you access to course information and enables you to communicate with your tutors and other students. It also provides access to resources to support your learning.

You can use Moodle to find out about your course syllabus, course notes, handouts and assessments. You can also access a number of discussion boards and chat rooms through the system.

When you join Bedford College you will have your own email account. This will enable you to communicate with tutors, fellow students and friends outside of College. Moodle and email can be accessed from College computers and also via the Internet from home, your local library or internet cafes.
