The University College London (UCL) supports e-learning through the LMS Moodle.
UCL was founded in 1826 as a radically different university, opening up English higher education for the first time to people of all beliefs and social backgrounds as an alternative to Oxford and Cambridge universities. That radical tradition remains alive today. Our research strategy commits us to addressing UCL's 'Grand Challenges', by working together right across the university in order to tackle the problems that face us today - in global health, sustainable cities, intercultural understanding, and human wellbeing. We believe in undertaking fundamental research and in applying it.

E-learning Strategy and VLE - Moodle
At present (Autumn 2009) about 1500 taught modules have a Moodle component.

UCL's approach to e-learning is set out in the e-learning strategic statement (2005-10) (DOC). The strategy is being updated in 2009/10 and areas of future focus will include:
