Moodle is the web-based location for course materials for Department courses. It also provides for additional teacher-to-student and student-to-student communication.
Students need to self register onto courses via the link on the Moodle homepage to gain access to the sites.
Moodle sites are based on easy-to-navigate front pages, through which course materials, often arranged by topic, can be accessed. Each course has a different site, and each provides different resources, but sites may include reading lists (sometimes with links to the LSE library database and scanned readings), lecture handouts, notice boards, discussion groups, space for class presentations and other work, and past exam papers.
Notices about seminars and lectures may be posted on Moodle rather than emailed to students, so check the sites for your courses regularly.
Social Policy Student News
Social Policy Student News is our e-newsletter and is sent out fortnightly during term time. It includes information about departmental events, public lectures, personal development and job opportunities, plus lots of other useful information.
There is a Departmental noticeboard and an e-noticeboard, both of which are located in the lobby area on the second floor of the Old Building, next to OLD 2.45.
