KEATS (King's e-learning)
King's primary web-based online learning environment from September 2012 is KEATS
(King's E-learning and Teaching Service). It is accessible from the College and externally, via the internal pages or the direct link to KEATS
What is KEATS?
KEATS is the centrally supported virtual learning environment for the delivery of teaching material throughout King's College London. KEATS has been launched this year and replaces Blackboard (the College's old e-learning system), local e-learning environments and local module web pages.
You will now find teaching materials for all your modules on KEATS. It is your responsibility to make sure you have access to the correct modules and that you check KEATS regularly for new material.
How do I see my modules on KEATS?
The departments in Natural & Mathematical Sciences have different policies on how you access your modules on KEATS, some may have guest access set up (you can see material without being enrolled on the module), some use self-enrolment and others use automated enrolment. You should check your department handbook for more information.
To find your modules once you are logged in to KEATS:
1. In the search box enter the module code or title. If you want to see a list of modules for your year, enter the first part of the module code, e.g. 6CCS, for third year modules in Informatics.
2. Click on the relevant module title (it will be hyperlinked).
3. At this point depending on how the module is set up you might be able to self enrol - click on the ‘enrol me’ button. You may be able to view the module instantly via guest access, or if you are not yet enrolled on the module you will only see the summary information.
4. Once enrolled on a module, the module name will be added to a personalised list of courses which you can find in the Navigation box under the tab “My courses”.
Who do I contact if I have problems using KEATS?
Please see the links on the right of this page for general guidance on how to use KEATS. If you are not able to see a module listed in KEATS that you know should be there then you should contact your Programme Administrator in your departmental office.
However, if you are experiencing technical issues with KEATS (including not being able to log-in) then the IT Service Desk is the primary point of contact. When contacting the IT Service Desk you must provide as much detail of the course as you can - ideally, the module code and title. Emails should be used for non-urgent issues only. If your matter is urgent you should telephone the IT Service Desk on 020 7848 2430 (Monday-Friday 0800-1800).
