1. 'Reflections on using a VLE to create communities of practice in arts and design teaching and learning in a pandemic context'
Abstract: This commentary examines the potential for VLEs to create and embed communities of practice and to support students' learning experience in art and design, and specifically fashion. A case study approach is employed, using the example of a community focused platform, Aula. The findings indicate that while using conventions from social media can increase communication between students and engagement about the learning material, there are limitations to using a VLE to create and sustain a learning community.
