    Students put on a great show for the new Canvas VLE

    The Edward Boyle auditorium at St Hilda’s college was the scene for a very different approach to information sharing at Oxford on Wednesday 30 January. The Canvas@Oxford programme, which will deliver the new virtual learning environment (VLE) across the University, performed a play in front of an audience of academics and administrators. The play showed how Canvas can be combined with the flipped classroom teaching method to deliver engaging and non-traditional teaching experiences. Deanne Clarke and Jemilat Kazeem played the roles of first year students on Professor X’s Chemistry course.
