I used to hate the idea of VLEs because all they were becoming was online pigeon-holes for storing paper documents (paper-under-glass).
Must agree I share the frustration expressed here and the comments posted to this Building VLEs blog reflect common experiences for learning technologists world wide who are trying to encourage teachers to engage with the potential for using of technology in education.
Uploading documents should never be the beginning because in my experience it leads frustration both for teachers because it causes them more workload and also for those eLearning staff who are desperately trying to get educators to see beyond their physical filing cabinets and see the ‘e’ in eLearning not as an abbreviation for ‘extra’ but for ‘engaging’.
OK so seems everyone agrees on the barriers but how do we get educators to engage with this stuff?
Do these "develop by stages" approaches help or hinder?

Good leadership key to technology success in universities
Technology has to help institutions to reengineer themselves for the next ten to fifteen years. Organisations like JISC need to facilitate this change and increase the level of technological understanding, especially at strategic and senior levels.
