Updated Weblearn & Login Problems

Welcome to Weblearn

The new Weblearn is ready for you all to log in and start using, you may find some of the changes quite strange if you've been here before but they are all designed to give you access to new fun & interesting features.

Initial Troubleshooting

One of the most common problems with the new Weblearn is that although students maybe able to login to college computers, their current passwords may not be secure enough to login to Microsoft Live. If you're able to successfully log into the College computer systems but not into Weblearn or your Student email, please make sure your password is secure enough.

This can be done by making sure to include: At least one upper & lower case character, a number & a Special character such as ! . ,

Examples of a good password include the following:

  • Wimbledon2010!
  • Chelsea *2008*
  • Halo140910!

If a student is still having problems logging in to Weblearn, please visit the LRC where a Librarian/ITAdviser can help.

Getting Logged In

Students can all log in using the new Microsoft Windows Live block on the left hand side of the page.

Your login username will be your college 'S' number (e.g S0001234) followed by '@live.nescot.ac.uk'

  • e.g. S0001234@live.nescot.ac.uk

Once logged in to weblearn, you can access your email account from the live services block on the left hand side. Alternatively, you can access your email directly from www.outlook.com logging in with your Weblearn login

Upon first login, you may be asked some questions. This is to fulfill the Microsoft Live account system. Please select 'allow' when asked to share your contact details - don't worry, this is related to your in-college contacts, and NOT your personal details!

The Good Stuff

In addition to 20gb Student mailboxes we are also pleased to offer an alternative to USB pen drives, namely SkyDrive. SkyDrive is a solution to the problems faced by students last year with problematic pen drives.

Students are able to save their work, via Weblearn, to their SkyDrive, and then access it from anywhere around the world. This ensures that students' work can be stored, securely, online. In addition to this you are also given access to an online version of the Microsoft Office suite of products which include Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

To access these services from Weblearn's new menu select 'My Services' then choose SkyDrive. This will take you to your personal storage area, where you can save, view and organize your files. Additionally, you also have the option to work together on group pieces of work by using the sharing functionality.


If you need any assistance with any aspect of Weblearn, please visit the library for help.
