Teaching tools and technologies
'E-learning' describes teaching and learning methods that are supported by the use of technology.
This could include accessing teaching resources online, communication tools, online assessment and classroom technologies such as interactive whiteboards.
A key benefit of e-learning is the increased opportunity for dialogue it offers to students and teachers, which in turn enhances the learning experience.
E-learning at UCL
UCL supports a number of technologies. Click the links to find out more about each tool:
A virtual learning environment where course materials can be easily managed and accessed.
Allows teachers to record, edit and broadcast their lectures online.
Helps lecturers gauge how much students know about a topic and can also enliven the student learning experience.
An anti-plagiarism tool that scans work against a large database of websites, journals and previously submitted papers.
An online space where students can store all their notes and work, allowing access to as few or as many people as they like.
Ideal for long-distance learning, allowing students to watch and participate in teaching sessions as they happen.
Academics can share their work online for free - something that UCL is committed to doing with all its research.
A series of
lunchtime events that look at new e-learning in UCL. Two or three
speakers discuss how they've used new technologies in their teaching.
