Myplace is University of Strathclyde's Virtual Learning Environment. Originally a single Moodle-based service, officially called "classes.myplace", the Myplace family now offers a number of different instances, for different audiences.
Classes is the original "Myplace", this service supports the majority of Strathclyde University's Undergraduate and Postgraduate Degree Courses, as well as numerous staff & student orientated modules from professional service departments.
The CPD instance of Myplace exists to support the University's delivery of non-degree bearing or paid-for modules, that are not accredited. These can be CPD modules offered by departments. End-users of the CPD service are expected to be loosely associated with the University, in that they typically do not have a persistent record of engagement (i.e. formal student record) and may be intermittent users of a service.
End-users self-register with this instance.
The FlexEd instance will support students undertaking periods of study that are not associated with a formal programme of study, such as a degree programme, but may contribute towards on-going record of study.
The cpd.myplace and flexed.myplace services are likely to converge in the future, to provide one single platform for students on non-degree/CPD/CLL style learning.
The corp.myplace service supports programmes that are highly programme-led. This service reduces the number of presentation and configuration options available to programmes, to focus on a tightly-integrated, programme focused learning experience.
