About the VLE

The VLE is a Virtual Learning Environment that allows users to use various software applications without having them on their machine. 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.

 

VLE for Mac:

Many of the specialized software used and/or taught at Stevens is Windows-based. 

For Mac users, using the VLE is a great method to utilize these various software applications without the additional cost of purchasing Parallels, sacrificing hard drive space, or processing power to install Parallels on the Mac for a Windows 7/10 machine to run, which causes slower performance on the Mac machine.

 

Who can use VLE:

Everyone at Stevens can use the VLE: All faculty, staff, and students can log into the VLE with their campus ID username and password.
