LSE For You - database for seminar groups, class registers, class mailers, graduate course choice etc. Student hub for organisation, as well as staff centre for room booking, reprographics etc.
Moodle - LSE's Virtual Learning Environment - most taught courses have individual sites on here as well as discussion forums, and students can upload essays here. Its an online space that allows teachers to bring together a range of resources (e.g. reading lists and links to important articles and other web pages) and tools and activities (e.g. quizzes and forums) to support student learning.
