"The integration between Moodle and Planet eStream give us tracking capabilities, which means we can monitor through the VLE which students have completed the pre-lesson work. For teaching staff, this is a very useful tool. We use the VLE for assignment submission and marking, too, and the Planet eStream Assignment Submission plugin for Moodle enables students to upload assignments quickly and easily. It also allows staff to mark work, giving comments and feedback within the system, which makes marking more enjoyable and saves significant time." Neil Prior, Head of E-Learning, Berkshire College of Agriculture

"A significant proportion of our students’ learning is practical. We needed a solution that would fundamentally transform our recorded performance library system, turning it into one that could be embedded in our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and accessed by staff and students on demand." Mark Soole, Head of ICT Services, Royal College of Music
