Digital Learning

Digital Learning encompasses the use of digital tools and spaces within teaching to improve the quality of the student experience.

Digital learning takes many forms. Examples include: online discussions, collaborative writing, producing online portfolios, giving recorded audio feedback, running live polls in the classroom, participating in online seminars.

All LCC courses use Moodle as a digital space for course information and learning activities, as well as the Assessment Feedback tool (previously OAT) for feedback and provisional grades.

Additional UAL digital learning platforms – Turnitin, Workflow, MyBlogs, Collaborate Ultra, Padlet & Panopto – support a variety of online learning activities. See Digital Learning Services for further information about each platform.

In addition, Miro and Mural have both been approved for use with students but are not supported by UAL.

Digital Creative Attributes Framework (DCAF)

The DCAF is an expression of the UAL Creative Attributes Framework (CAF). It is a list of digital practices (e.g. Connectivity: Using digital tools and spaces to connect to, and work with, collaborators) that students should develop during their time at LCC. 

It can be used to help design teaching activities and to help students reflect on their digital practices in relation to the attributes. Read more about DCAF & CAF
