See Teaching Online 2021-22 for the latest information.
UAL Digital Learning Platforms
All LCC courses use Moodle as the online home for teaching, including learning material, communication and assessment.
UAL’s other digital learning platforms can be used for a variety of learning activities: Collaborate Ultra (live sessions), Workflow (portfolios), MyBlog (blogs and websites), Panopto (video recordings), Padlet (virtual pinboard / canvas) and Microsoft Teams (live tutorials).
In addition, Miro and Mural have both been approved for use with students but are not directly supported by UAL.
See UAL Teaching Online for general information and guides on using our digital learning platforms.
