Using Learn to Create and Teach Courses

The use of Learn at the University of Edinburgh is the combination of the Blackboard Learn software and the developments instigated through the Learn Foundations Project. Together these have produced an approach to the use of Learn that ensures that content is easier to access and use for both staff and students.

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.
