The University of Liverpool is to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a “virtual learning environment” (VLE).

The institution has kicked off a bidding process by issuing a contract notice seeking a supplier to provide the relevant software and services. The winning bidder is set to be awarded a four-year deal worth somewhere in the region of £100,000 to £500,000.

The tender follows the conclusion of a review of the university’s existing virtual learning set-up. This was commissioned in late 2017 by senior management, who wished to “ensure we can position ourselves to meet the evolving needs of our staff and students”.

“Given the importance of the VLE to our learning and teaching activities, the review has been about how we want to use technology to effectively support the teaching and learning experience and facilitate excellent pedagogy, the university added.

Bids for the contract are open until 20 May, with a deal scheduled to come into effect on 5 July.
