As some of you have commented, WebCT is a useful tool but some parts of it don’t respond in the way that you would expect. In a couple of weeks we’ll have a look at how to use WebCT as a teacher.

However, the University of Edinburgh is shortly going to move to a different, updated platform. More information on Learn 9, the new platform, can be found here.
