MyBeckett staff guides

Step by step guides for staff

What is MyBeckett?

Important Update: During August 2020 TeachLearn content will not be updated whilst this website is undergoing maintenance. 

We have created a temporary placeholder document for any urgent updates regarding MyBeckett and Digital Learning staff guides.


MyBeckett is our University Portal and Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). It allows staff and students to access a range of systems, services, module teaching materials, online assessments and feedback tools. 

It's heavily customised by the Digital Learning Service, based on student and staff feedback. Students and staff see relevant, personalised content when they log in. Distance Learning and some Franchise Partner students have their own personalised portal view.

The list below contain all relevant links to our staff guides to MyBeckett at Leeds Beckett University.
