Looking for Help with Learn?

From the beginning of the 23/24 academic year, all new courses will be delivered using an updated Learn interface. In order to ensure that users can access support materials for current and previous year courses we have kept old support materials on Edweb pages and created a new Sharepoint Learn site full of useful resources for the new interface.

For Learn resources for current courses, please visit the Learn Sharepoint (University of Edinburgh users only).

Here you can access the most up-to-date information such as:

  • Good practice guidance
  • Training and support resources 
  • How to guides

To access support material for older courses please use the pages below as usual.


The course material should be clearly organised by week, topic or another sensible naming convention; this is to ensure students can easily locate the relevant learning resources such as lecture notes, handouts and slides.

Adopting a structure can help students to understand and engage with the activities and resources for each week.  A clear title and short explanation of the learning activities and objectives for each week can make a big difference to student engagement.
