The Bloomsbury Learning Environment (BLE) is a digital education service.
We bring together expertise to share good practice and enable collaboration on shared projects to develop technology enhanced learning. We are a partnership comprising Bloomsbury institutions and the University of London.
The BLE collaboration was established by LSHTM (the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine), the RVC (Royal Veterinary College) and SOAS (the School of Oriental & African Studies) in 2004, and was joined in 2005 by the IOE (now known as the UCL Institute of Education), Birkbeck in 2007, and the University of London in 2015. The function of the BLE is to provide mutual benefits, including shared technical support, pedagogical expertise, cost efficiencies on licence fees and collaborative funding opportunities.
