Abstract

Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) tools as a web based digital technology and software facilitate teaching activities and student learning experience. It is increasingly becoming an innovative way of learning and an essential part of courses in the Higher Education sector. Although the speedy explosion and increased recognition of virtual learning, little is known how VLE diffusion rate and innovative attributes affect module delivery and student learning experience through the mediating role of virtual collaboration. Using an usable response of 209 university students from the online self-administered survey, our results indicates that there are direct and indirect significant relationships between innovative attributes, module virtual collaboration and learning experience. As a result, lecturers should actively encourage and support students to virtually collaborate with each other around key issues related to VLE in order to enhance their learning experience. The senior management teams of the university should equip academic and support staff with VLE for being able to fully use VLE its full capacity.
