Learning and Teaching Excellence

Welcome to the SOAS learning technology support pages

General information and background

The Bloomsbury Learning Environment (BLE) is a Virtual Learning Environment, which is a web-based system providing teaching and learning via the internet and designed for ease of use by people with varying levels of IT expertise. All you need is a web browser (Firefox, Google Chrome, Edge or Safari), an internet connection and your password. You can access it anywhere from the world 24/7.

SOAS works closely with the other colleges in the Bloomsbury Consortium – the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), Birkbeck and the Institution of Education (IoE) to benefit from shared technical support, common training courses for academic and technical staff and the sharing of ideas and best practice. Find out more about the Bloomsbury collaboration.
