    Welcome to the Student Support Course for KEATS

    KEATS is the 'virtual learning environment' (VLE) available to all schools/departments across the College. A VLE is an online system designed to support teaching and learning, providing functionality that can support, enhance or extend the same kinds of activities that would take place in regular teaching. 

    **KEATS Upgrade July 2016: Check out the Guidance for Students document to see any changes following the recent KEATS upgrade.**

      New to KEATS Banner

      KEATS is the centrally supported college e-learning service for the delivery of e-learning materials to support courses throughout King's College London. KEATS uses software called Moodle which we brand as KEATS (standing for King's E-learning And Teaching System). KEATS makes teaching and learning materials available to students electronically and provides interactive features, such as assessments, discussions and assignments.

      • Your course may be using the e-learning service to supplement a course taught in a regular classroom environment and may only add some key documents.
      • Alternately, your course may be taught largely online and a variety of materials and tools (such as assessments, discussions, chat, etc) may be available exclusively in your online course.

      All registered staff and students can log in using their King's username and password. The enrolment of students on to courses is done automatically. If you are a student and you are not able to see a course listed contact the IT Service Desk

      Assignments and Turnitin are used in KEATS to enable you to submit coursework such as essays - you can upload one or more documents as attachments. Turnitin is often used in conjunction with the 'originality report' in order to help you understand the importance of issues around plagiarism and citing references.

    • Lecture Capture

      If your lecturer is using lecture capture, you will be able to access recordings of the audio and/or video of sessions. All centrally-timetabled rooms with capacity for 50 or more students are equipped with either lecture capture hardware or capture software on the podium PC.

      • If your module uses KEATS, the recording will be uploaded automatically. Within 24 hours of the lecture you will be able to access the recording by logging in to KEATS and navigating to the module for which the recording was made.
      • If your module uses Virtual Campus, then links to recorded content will be added by your lecturer.
