Migrating from WebCT to Moodle
In 2007 UCL made a decision to adopt Moodle as its institutional Virtual Learning Environment. This involved a migration from the then VLE (WebCT Campus Edition 4.1) to Moodle. This decision was based on the results of an evaluation which started in October 2005 and was endorsed by the Executive Subcommittee on Innovations in Learning, Teaching and Assessment (ESCILTA).
The evaluation was been carried out by staff from the Information Services Division (ISD) working with an academic-led working group. The reports from both groups are provided below.
The evaluation was conducted by a team comprised of user support staff from E-Learning Environments, VLE system administrators from the Applications Development team, and technical support staff from the IS Operating Systems Group.
The evaluation involved a detailed feature comparison of the two most appropriate VLEs for UCL (WebCT CE6 and Moodle).
VLE Evaluation Working Group
An academic-led working group was set up in May 2006 by the Executive Subcommittee on Innovations in Learning, Teaching and Assessment (ESCILTA) to investigate the existing and potential use of e-learning at UCL in order to inform a decision as to the most appropriate choice of Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) for UCL.
As part of the consultation process, the working group decided to survey staff and students about their current and future uses of e-learning as well as their views on the use of e-learning for their teaching and learning.

The migration to Moodle
The migration from WebCT CE4 to Moodle commenced in June 2007 and completed in September 2009.
