Virtual Campus

The Virtual Campus is a secure intranet system, which has been developed for use in prisons in England and Wales, which allows students to access a range of information, communication facilities and other resources which would otherwise only be available online.

Students can use to the Virtual Campus to:

  • View audio-visual material
  • Take part in the module quizzes and interactive activities
  • Complete interactive computer–marked assignments (iCMAs)
  • Contact their tutor through a secure relay messaging service

Virtual Campus advisers (such as prison tutors, personal officers and probation officers) can also use it to:

  • create and manage learner action plans
  • send 'secure relay messages' to the learner
  • view statistics for cohorts of students.

It is currently being rolled out to the majority of prisons in England and Wales.

I’m hoping that with doing education that I’ll be more employable, that I’ll be more acceptable in the community, and it helps to rehabilitate me for getting out.
