Our virtual learning environment (VLE) is built on Moodle. It provides courses where learning materials and activities can be accessed. The majority of taught courses have a Moodle course which either students are automatically enrolled onto or they can self enrol onto. Moodle courses contain activities such as quizzes, communication tools, resources such as audio and video files, lecture slides, links to recordings of lectures and reading lists. 

Both staff and students have access to Moodle. 

Go to  moodle.uel.ac.uk and log in using your UEL network username and password. Your password is the same network password that you use to log into your PC/Mac with. Learn how to change your password.

All Moodle users have an editable profile where you can upload a photo and add additional details about yourself. As well as information displayed to other Moodle users, your profile includes a number of settings that affect how Moodle functions and how it is displayed to you. 

Access your profile by clicking on your name in Moodle. (Your name is usually visible in the top right-hand corner or at the bottom of the page).  

In the Settings block on the left, click profile.

  1. Edit the fields you wish to change. 
  2. Include a picture by dragging it into the field, and you can list your interests as tags, which will link to other staff and students who have chosen the same tag.
  3. Click Update profile at the bottom of the page 
  4. For more information about Moodle visit  our intranet (Note: you will need to be logged in to view our intranet pages).


We offer our students 24/7 access to our eBooks software called Kortext for free on your tablet or smartphone.

The Kortext Bookshelf can also be accessed on UEL Moodle course pages.
