About: I am the Service Manager for the Bloomsbury Learning Environment (BLE) - a shared e-learning service for five institutions of the University of London (Birkbeck, the Institute of Education, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, SOAS and the Royal Veterinary College). The service comprises a virtual learning environment (Moodle - as of September 2012), lecture capture software (Echo360), virtual classroom software (Blackboard Collaborate), online plagiarism detection software (Turnitin) and a suite of other web2.0 tools. We've also been lucky enough to have received funding from JISC for two collaborative projects over the past 4 years. For more information, please visit
