Online Learning at Newcastle University

Students using e-learning facilities

Many of our courses use our virtual learning environment, Blackboard, to support and enhance your study experience. Blackboard is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and allows you to:

  • access learning materials, such as reading lists, course handouts and module information
  • submit work online and take part in online discussions
  • e-mail staff

We also have an online lecture recording system (ReCap). Recap is available in all large lecture rooms (70+ seats) and allows lecturers to record and publish their lectures online so you can listen to them again at any time.
