UCL Moodle is a virtual learning environment (VLE) or online learning space used to support and enhance teaching, learning, and research in University College London.
Moodle UCL is used to supplement taught modules, in some cases just by providing essential information and materials, but it can also be integrated more fully, becoming an essential component of a module.
Some modules may use Moodle to provide access to readings, videos, activities, collaboration tools, and assessments.

Why can’t I log on to UCL Moodle with my UCL username and password?
