UCL IT Essentials

UCL computing cluster room in Foster Court basement

This page supports the presentation, “UCL IT essentials”. It is designed for delivery in September 2022 at UCL for students in UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies (STS). Considerable amounts of information for new students is available via UCL Information Services Division (ISD). In addition, induction material is offered by UCL LIbrary Services. Advice on using Moodle, and other digital learning platforms is available from UCL Learning and Teaching Services. If you need help, try those services first. Students still experiencing difficulties should discuss their needs with their personal tutor, in the first instance, and module tutors, in the second instance. The handout supporting the film is downloadable at the bottom of this page.
