Learning technologies

Moodle is an essential go-to point for:

  • course content
  • reading lists
  • assessment and study requirements
  • assignment uploads
  • discussion forums
  • contact information your tutors and lecturers.

Moodle shows you the weekly requirements for your units, recordings you should watch, and scheduled Zoom sessions. Make sure you check Moodle regularly to stay up to date.

If you have questions about your units, Moodle discussion forums are a good starting point. You might feel nervous about using the discussion forums, but a good forum post doesn’t need to be perfect. You can ask questions, offer suggestions, expand on a topic, or offer your own advice to other students – this way, your teachers and peers can help you succeed.
