Single sign-on learning management system with tailored e-learning courses for UCL

Performance-Management-UCL-Marshall-ElearningThe Challenge

University College London required a series of tools and courses for students and staff on a range of subjects such as Diversity and Inclusion, GDPR, Safeguarding and Performance Management. The technical challenge for us was to provide them with their own branded LMS that allowed for single sign-on capabilities that integrated with their current system. Not only this, but they would also need to be able to track learner uptake and scores to get a full picture of completion rates and scores.

Our solution

UCL has been a client since 2004, so we were happy to collaborate with them again on a bespoke technical solution that integrated seamlessly into their existing student and staff portals. Our first step was to take an in-depth look at their existing systems and security requirements. Once this had been completed, we worked alongside their IT systems staff to produce two versions of the Marshall Learning Management System – one for staff and the other for students.

This LMS solution provided a hosting platform for the range of staff and student courses. Both systems have single sign-on and an accessible API giving the university excellent reporting on resources for staff and students. We also provided training to staff on how to use the LMS, showing staff how to upload any SCORM or TinCan compliant courses, how to upload PDF, documents and support materials to the Resources section as well as how to create their own simple text and image courses


The UCL LMS portal has been in constant use by staff and students since 2017. Tash Khan-Davis, Organisational Development Consultant at University College London had this to say about working with us:

“Through Marshall E-Learning, we can rapidly scale up and deliver training to our thousands of staff, enabling the content to be easily tailored to the local context.”

“I would like to express my thanks to you, and your team for the work that you have done to produce and support UCL’s GDPR Online training. In Particular, the development of the accessible versions. Five of our visually impaired staff have used the PDF version to date, and all have said that it was very well developed and were pleased that they had been able to do the training in this manner. Furthermore, the audio version has gone down a storm.

Your team have always been very quick to respond, and always found solutions to problems; there was never a question that couldn’t be addressed. This is superb service and I wanted to acknowledge this.”
