    Online Learning Environment (OLE). The OLE supports students’ learning with its resourceful library of lecture notes, supplementary readings and hyperlinks to useful websites. The Discussion Board on the platform also facilitates communication among students and instructors about their ideas, reflections, difficulties and solutions.
