Abstract: After working with our previous VLE (Blackboard) for 13 years it was time to change. Most teachers used the VLE as a digital bookshelf. Part of the problem was unfamiliarity and/or ignorance of teachers with the possibilities in the VLE. A major part was the lack of functionalities. As a result of a European tender we adopted a new VLE that fits our needs better. Switching VLE’s gave us new possibilities in terms of functionality but also gave a new boost for adopting the VLE as a tool for better quality of our education.
