Blackboard and VLE Awards 2022, surrounded by glitter and stars.

Nominations for the Blackboard and VLE awards are now open! You can provide feedback on your Blackboard and online modules. So, acknowledge the modules that innovated and delivered an exemplary experience. This year marks a very special anniversary, as this is the 10th year the VLE awards have run. Throughout this time and more recently, we have seen a huge migration to online platforms. This enriches our learning environments and enables learning and teaching to continue in turbulent times.

Student nominations

You can nominate up to three modules, with the nomination stage being open until the 28th of February 2022. With every module you nominate, you can opt to be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a £50 Amazon Voucher.

Nominate your modules using the student nomination form.

Staff nominations

Staff can nominate one of their own courses. Since we are celebrating the 10th year of the VLE Awards, this year we are asking you to nominate your course in one of 10 categories.

Further information is included in the staff self-nomination form.
