Digital Learning Environment Services (DLE Student Portal)

Digital Learning Environmen(DLE)



The Digital Learning Environment is a ULCC-hosted solution (University of London Computer Centre) that utilises and aggregates data from other services. These Services are existing University systems such as the Student Record System.



Moodle forms the core of Plymouth University’s Digital Learning Environment (DLE), a virtual on-line Learning Space. DLE  is the primary e-learning platform for Plymouth University. It offers a range of tools that support on-line teaching and learning tools, techniques and features that facilitate and enhance traditional classroom activities.

The data repository supporting the DLE utilises a Resource Store supplied by the Equella product.

Learning tools include:

Tallis Aspire - online reading materials - on-line availability of training courses for over 1600 software products 

Turnitin - plagiarism-prevention software

PebblePad - an e-portfolio package 

The DLE can be accessed via the following link:
