Steering Group

The Northern Ireland Integrated Managed Learning Environment (NIIMLE) is a large consortium-based project, one of only two in the UK funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). The projectís main aim is to build a cross-institutional Managed Learning Environment (MLE) for the Northern Ireland region that facilitates the mobility of the lifelong learner and supports collaboration between  FE and HE institutions. More specifically, the consortium's objective is to encourage students to see FE and HE in a more unified, holistic way - to look beyond the qualification for which they are enrolled and explore progression routes to higher and complementary studies, and thereafter to facilitate their continued movement within the sector. For students in the tertiary sector, the project will provide a regional portal to a range of services which students can use to inform their choices on future courses and progression routes.

The NIIMLE project officially ended on 31 July 2005
