A quick guide to... Moodle
What is Moodle?
Moodle is the e-learning environment used by UCL. Each module you take has its own Moodle page. There is also a Moodle Student Inductions course for new students which we recommend you read. This can be accessed from the first page you see when you log in to Moodle.
What’s on there?
On it you will find:
- Contact details of the person in overall charge of the module (also known as the module convenor)
- Course timetable and venue
- Lecture notes and handouts
- Course reading list (plus links to e-journals if available)
- Reading lists
- Assessment details
- Access to the Turn-it-in software used to upload your electronic assignment copies
How do I enrol on the courses?
Once you have chosen and confirmed your module selection on PORTICO you will automatically be enrolled on the relevant Moodle course. Part-time students and full-time students with optional modules will find that the Moodle course will show up once this selection process is confirmed by the department. This may take several days.
How often should I access it?
At least once a week! This is the main point of contact for your taught courses. We no longer provide paper information. If there are late changes in the timetable we will use this facility to inform you of them so we advise you to check the day before your lectures in case there has been a change of venue for example.
How interactive is it? What if I want to ask a question about the module?
There is a news forum on each Moodle module page which all students enrolled on that module have access to. We positively encourage you to interact with your fellow students. You can start a discussion group about a topic or let people know about events related to the module topic (such as seminars or television programmes) that you think they may be interested in for example. You can even use it to ask questions about aspects of the module you may not entirely understand—often other students can help explain it in a way that makes it clear to you.
We only have two rules when posting topics:
- Be nice!
- Make sure the topic heading is sensible. “Help needed with perceptions of crime” is better than just “Help”!
