Welcome and congratulations on commencing your studies at UEL! Please allow us at John Smith’s to help you feel at ease and ready to start your journey.

John Smith’s is your specialist UEL student service, based on campus, and here to help you with your studies at UEL, supply you with the essential books and products you need to succeed and to provide assistance for your Samsung Galaxy Note Tablet.

Stratford: Collect your free tablet from the Student hub between the 2nd - 4th September, the 14th - 16th September and the 21st-25th September

Docklands: Collect your free tablet from the Library Skills Zone between 21st - 25th September

UEL have partnered with John Smith’s to provide you a unique learning experience, where your new tablet becomes a part of your everyday learning.

Here’s some history of the tablet project in 2014!

On your tablet, you can:
Rewatch Lectures
Access Moodle
Access Library Resources
View, interact with and take your textbooks with you, everywhere, through your Kortext app and bookshelf!

Your tablet will be used by your lecturers in their classes. They will use the notes and group settings in Kortext to create an innovative and interactive way to learn.

To give you a head start, John Smith’s has sourced the below starter bundle, which saves you £31 on the RRP.

John Smith’s will also be running training sessions for you - watch this space for confirmed dates!

However, please do come and see us in-store where we’ll be happy to help with your queries.

Please also look to the Kortext YouTube channel which has details on Kortext, Demos and more!
