The Centre for Learning and Teaching in Art and Design (CLTAD) is leading the university’s transition from Blackboard to Moodle. The aim is for Moodle to be fully implemented and available to all UAL staff and students by September 2013.
To help colleagues and students find out about Moodle, CLTAD has developed a really useful and user friendly website called Life after Blackboard. On it you can also see an interactive illustrated map of the UAL’s VLE (virtual learning environment) which clearly visualises the suite of digital tools, including Moodle, that is available to all courses. The VLE provides a set of tools that allows lecturers to create and deliver course content and assessments, and communicate via the internet.
