What is the VLE and how to get started

Why use the VLE?

Many of the applications used here at Stevens are graphic and memory intensive, requiring large amounts of hard drive space to function properly. Thus, the virtual learning environment (https://stevens.edu/VLE) provides the best suitable technical structure for superior performance of sophisticated applications such as SolidWorks, the complete Adobe Creative suite, Mimics, Matlab, Labview, HyperChem, Microsoft Project and Microsoft Visio, just to name a few.
