LEAP is here

Filed under: News — ckeitch @ 9.13 am

LEAPLEAP is our new Learner Engagement Activity Portal which will give you an overview of your academic progress, specifically how engaged you are with your course.

From the start of term, you’ll be able to see what you have been up to at university based upon your engagement with university resources including:

  • Faser
  • Moodle
  • Listen Again
  • Your attendance
  • University computer logins

LEAP will provide you with an engagement indicator for the last 7 days. There are 5 engagement indicators (high, good, partial, low and very low) which will help map your engagement with your academic studies.

These engagement indicators are designed to help you think about your engagement with your course, help you make informed choices about your studies and empower you to become a more effective independent learner.

From the start of term, you will be able to can login to LEAP  through My Essex and Pocket Essex, our mobile app for Android and iOS using your Essex ID ( and normal Essex password.

Some of our students helped pilot this system last year, and because it was such a success, we’re now launching LEAP across the university wide. ‘Thank you’ to everyone who took part in the pilot.

You can email us at  if you have any problems logging in.


The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.
