How to access readings for the Supporting Learning Teaching and Assessment module

This is a guide on how to access the essential readings for the Learning & Teaching in Higher Education module LTM010 'Supporting learning teaching and assessment'.

The first thing to note is that most of the essential readings for this module are available from the course's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). You can log into the VLE here: https://lthe.elearning.london.ac.uk/. On the module page, click on one of the topics, and you will see a link to the reading.

But some of your readings will be in the Online Library. You can access most resources in the Online Library using the same username and password you use to log into the VLE. But to access everything in the Online Library, you need an Athens account. For example, you need an Athens account in order to access our e-books. Fill in this form to request an Athens account. 

The best way to search the Online Library is to go to the homepage and enter the title of the article or book into the Summon search box. Click on the article or book in the Summon search results, and you will be taken to the website of one of our databases, where you will be asked to login. You can also log directly into your databases from your programme gateway

Now we'll look at how you can access your essential readings which are in the Online Library.
