Moodle Unit Preview

The Moodle Unit Preview enables Monash students to search and view unit and assessment information in a clear, simple and consistent way. The Unit Preview is generated when at least one unit offering is linked to a Moodle site via the Callista block, and when the Unit Preview has been enabled for the unit from the Manage Unit Preview page.

The Unit Preview draws from the existing Moodle site and unit Handbook in a dynamic way, so that the unit preview information displayed will always be up-to-date.  Academics can choose what information is displayed from the Manage unit preview page, such as weekly section headings, content warnings, assessment tasks and accreditation specific information. All assessment tasks should be represented in the Moodle Unit Preview. Formative tasks and resources are not required.

The Moodle Unit preview can be accessed by clicking on the magnifying glass icon on the navigation bar. This will display the Unit preview search page.

  • You can search for a unit by typing the Unit code or Unit Title into the search bar, then clicking the magnifying glass icon.
  • On the right hand side, search results can also be filtered by teaching period and faculty using the checkboxes. Click Apply Filters to apply search filters.
  • On the left hand side, students will see a list of units in which they are currently enrolled. Clicking on the Unit code will display the Moodle unit preview for their unit.
