VLE Access

Providers are now able to set up access to GVS PiLOT through their own VLE, thanks to our new feature – Seamless Connect. Utilising Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) protocol, we are able to offer a system that can support:

  • a unified platform for all resources and applications
  • a simplified login process

The only prerequisite is that the existing VLE being used must be LTI compatible, such as Moodle and Canvas. Connection is easy – simply contact our support team to request an LTI access key which will enable you to implement LTI access to GVS PiLOT within your VLE.

What is GVS PiLOT

This is our cloud based Learning Management System which has been specially designed to provides metrics, tracking and progress reports for managers, tutors and learners, to help improve the effectiveness and management of the teaching and learning process. 

The provision of comprehensive analytical data, filtered into meaningful metrics via the generation of reports, can help to provide support and transparency to the teaching and learning process, in order to improve learner outcomes. 

Other key benefits of our cloud based system include:

  • remote access - i-GVS content accessible from any computer in any location
  • automatic software updates to minimise operational disruptions
  • visual charts - help to clearly display results
  • messenger function - enable direct communication between tutor and learner

Linked with i-GVS

GVS PiLOT can be used in conjunction with i-GVS to support the tutor in managing the teaching and learning process. This can be done through:

  • setting tasks for learners
  • producing reports of completed tasks
  • identifying specific areas of a topic where a learner may be struggling
  • providing feedback to learners about their progression

All assessed tasks (i-Check, i-Test and i-Practice) completed by a learner can be recorded and saved in GVS PiLOT, and analysis of this data can help the tutor track a learner’s progression through i-GVS according to the benchmark that was set for them, as well as providing an overall picture of cohort progression. This can be used to help plan future lessons and identify where additional support may be needed.

Using the metrics and reporting function can also help to support the tutor in setting targets for learner’s Individual Learning Plans (ILPs).

GVS PiLOT Reports

Currently we have 6 report types available, and each can be used to display different data sets. These are:

                                                 
  • Group progress report - summarises details of the overall usage and performance of learners within their groups 

  • Topic elements report – summarises details of learners’ activity within a particular topic, showing usage or scores for each of the elements that make up the topic

  • i-Test elements report – lists each attempt for every task in an assessment, with screenshots displaying learners’ actual responses. This constitutes a detailed record of learner performance on those test

  • i-Test questions analysis report – compares the scores on each question in an assessment, showing which questions have been most and least challenging for particular groups

  • Groups average progress report – enables comparison between groups’ progress, performance and usage

  • User activity report – shows how many and how often users have accessed the materials, enabling comparison across course
