In this paper, we evaluate a personalized e-learning environment, tailored for research students. The Graduate Virtual Research Environment (GVRE) was developed as a way of providing a blended learning experience for the development of research and employability skills, and it is informed by the Researcher Development Framework. The e-model used within the GVRE enables rich media to be applied to learning activities, as part of the learning and teaching strategy for research students studying for their Postgraduate Certificate in Research Training at the University of Hull, alongside their research degree. Our analysis suggests that there were two factors that influenced the way project participants carried out their learning activities: 1) utilizing the GVRE resources to sustain and enhance their postgraduate journey, and 2) relating appropriate resources to research and employability skills development.
