Note: This information is taken from the TALL Desk Study


Originally developed by the University of Leeds, now an open source project being developed by different UK partners


Bodington is an open source VLE built with Java and so should be a good ELF candidate. It is closely tied in with all of the major e-learning developments and will be Shibbolised (an international security standard) soon.


The fact that Bodington is Java-based and open source makes it a popular choice with institutions that want a lot of control and have the resources to adjust and develop the code. Whilst many courses are currently being run using Bodington, its open source nature means that it is constantly under intensive development. Because it is Java-based, it should be possible to link aspects of the VLE with a service type framework such as the ELF.

Features not directly related to ELF

  • Internationalisation
  • Bodington has some specific features for assessment:
    • Questionnaires (this would fit with the assessment service)
    • Short answer paper (this would fit with the assessment service)
    • Log book
