It is important to provide students with information about the support available to them while studying at UCL, in a place that is easy for them to find. If this information is contained in the module or programme handbook for example, this should be signposted in Moodle, so students understand where to look for this.
Be sure to include the following pages:
- The 'Learning with Technology' Moodle course to familiarise students with Moodle;
- The department website or a departmental 'Office' area on Moodle, which may be a good place to raise awareness without time-consuming duplication of links across modules.
Other support links you might include:
Support available from UCL directly including:
Support available to UCL students via external providers:
- UCL subscribes to Lynda for online training in software, creative, and business skills. You can link directly to relevant training and students access it by using the organisational URL www.ucl.ac.uk to log in at http://www.lynda.com/
- Box of Broadcasts, a personal recording service and media archive, is freely available to students.
