UCL Teaching and Learning Network (TLN)

2007 - 2008 Meetings

Moodle Showcase

Earlier this year UCL made the decision to move to a new Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) called Moodle, leaving two years for staff to migrate from the existing VLE WebCT. Since its introduction, we have seen a wide range of exciting and innovative implementations from across the whole of UCL.

The December session of the Teaching and Learning Network (TLN) introduced Moodle and showcased the many ways that Moodle can enhance teaching and learning.

Among those who presented were:

  • Jasmin Kaur (Human Communications Science) - the use of Moodle to support students on placement, allowing them to discuss and develop clinical ideas, share clinical resources and prepare for clinical vivas.
  • Matthew Darlison (CHIME) - Using self-tests, practicals and tutorials to increase student autonomy and deliver contingent teaching
  • Lisa Penfold (LAWS) - how LAWS have introduced Moodle
  • John Mitchell (Electrical Engineering) - Moodle to support problem-based learning
  • Claire Thomson (Film Studies) - 'Organic' moodle and the random film generator
  • Jane Walker (Management Science and Innovation) - The use of the Choice tool in Moodle to organise students into coursework workgroups
