Moodle - first steps to getting started

1. Take a look

Type this address into your browser’s address bar: https://moodle.ucl.ac.uk  You will see the page below.  Legacy Moodle contains courses that were taught in the 2017-2018 academic year. New Moodle contains all courses and programme content for 2018-2019.  The guidance on this page relates to New Moodle.

Click on New Moodle. In the Login box  located at the top right corner of the page, enter your Username and Password (the same as your UCL email) -there's no need to request an account, just log in and start looking at what is already available to you. If you cannot login, or have forgotten your password, contact the Information Services Division Servicedesk 020 7679 (4)5000 or servicedesk@ucl.ac.uk

2.Familiairise yourself with UCL Moodle

Moodle at UCL

Although you may have used Moodle elsewhere, UCL Moodle contains features specific to UCL. Find out about the UCL Moodle course life cycle, the UCL Moodle snapshot and how enrolments and resetting work.

3. Get some training

Attend a Moodle Drop in

The drop in is aimed at staff who would like to learn how to use Moodle. It provides an introduction to Moodle (both generally and how it's used at UCL) and the benefits of e-learning. 

You will also find out how to get a test course, which you can keep forever as a testing ground for learning Moodle.

4. Request your course

Moodle Course Request

Once you're ready to start making academic content in Moodle you'll need a course. Once you receive confirmation that your course has been set up, refer to I have a Moodle course, what do I do next?

5. Read our guides
