Guides and Resources

MBChB Moodle is the Medical School’s new platform for delivering the core learning and teaching content across the MBChB programme. Moodle has replaced Medblogs and DELTA which are available for reference.

Please contact TILT for any assistance with Moodle and editing access to a particular course.

Whilst we recommend Yuja, we realise that this is not always possible for pre-recording lectures. PowerPoint is an easy to use alternative to record audio directly into your PowerPoint show. 

We are also standardising the branding of the School’s lecture presentations and other content. This will encourage school-wide branding an help you to meet the accessibility requirements.

    Padlet is another fantastic online collaboration tool that can increase student engagement. Padlet lets users post notes on a digital wall.  Notes posted buy students or staff can contain links, images, video, comments and more.

    Padlet is commonly used for Q&A and information. However, there are many creative ways to use Padlet once you get started.

    Note: you need a university account to access Padlet

    YuJa is the University recording platform which can be used to record a lecture on teaching computers and your own device. Supports both video recording and voice-over PowerPoint. Once you have recorded your video, use the direct link or embed link to share your content.


    There are a range of collaboration tools to encourage and facilitate student engagement.  Using these tools in a virtual environment can encourage active learning and participation from your students. Mentimeter is one of them.

    Mentimeter allows you to build interactive presentations with an easy-to-use online editor, directly from your browser. Add questions, polls, quizzes, slides, images, GIFs and more to your presentation to make them more engaging and fun. Your audience can use their smartphone or other device to connect to your presentation and answer questions/provide feedback.

    Note: you need a university account to access Mentimeter

    Medblogs and DELTA have been replaced by MBChB Moodle and are no longer being updated as of July 2023 but is still available for locating historical information. Please visit MBChB Moodle for the latest information and teaching materials, and update your bookmarks to
