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.



As a student, you may be asked to blog using Learn's built-in blogging tool or using the platform which integrates with Learn.

Using Learn's built-in blogging tool

Learn has a built-in blogging tool which may be used in some courses.  BlackBoard provide guidance on how to use the blog tool as a student.


The University has a WordPress blogging service,, which is integrated with Learn. You may be provided with your own blog on the platform, or be asked to work in a group on a blog.
