dc.description.abstractThis study explores the contribution that learning technologies can make to support students and enhance their learning on placements. Using action research, the implementation of a virtual learning environment (VLE) with undergraduate students studying hospitality and tourism management is evaluated. The study reveals that it is feasible to create an online environment that can be beneficial for some students. However, barriers exist which prevent the full potential of such a facility being realised, and more needs to be done to promote the use of a VLE to assist students' abstract learning from experience. This may reflect the view held by many students and staff that the academic environment and the workplace are two distinct learning contexts.
