Student Information

WebCT allows course modules and course materials to be made available online. This means you can access your learning resources independently of time and location from anywhere the Internet is available.

For a quick start guide see our Word Document three-fold student introduction (version 4)

It is hoped that the advice provided in these pages will help students to use WebCT and become successful in their online courses.

Useful Advice

Log on regularly - Whilst undertaking an online course, ensure that you log on regularly and check for new messages.

Log out of WebCT when finished - It saves resources and helps to prevent others from accessing your materials.

If in doubt, shout! - If you encounter problems, seek help. Use the Vista Help, which is accessed from the logo bar. Alternatively, contact your tutor, the Helpdesk or the eLearning team.
