Virtual Learning Education (VLE) is a rapidly growing area in Education. Traditional forms of teacher education are transformed, as the Internet becomes a new medium for communication. Traditionally teachers have fulfilled dual roles as presenters of structured information and social agents in the educational process. Students are in need of good interactive resources with learning tools and techniques. Hence, there is a need for training in VLE so as to enable the teacher to provide good resources in the web. VLE can improve the quality of teacher education by availing various tools and techniques of assessment. The assessment of Virtual Learning Resources (VLR) helps to provide quality web resources in teacher education. It is also used to help teacher to have better resources and environment in which teaching takes place. The environment includes the organization, the learning materials, use of media, delivery methodology and various approaches in details. Assessment is a judgment regarding the worth or value of something. Typically the assessment process is divided into two parts. The first is a teacher assessment, which relates to interaction and guidance of a teacher with students and the second is a learning resources assessment, which relates to quality of materials and resources of a course. However, the primary function of the assessment is to help teacher to improve the total quality of education in VLE.
