What is Moodle?Moodle is an online area in which students can access course resources, such as assignments, and allow communication with staff and other students.
Logging InYou should be able to log in to Moodle using the username and password provided for your online Part-66 modules. If you have forgotten your password you can enter your username and the system will email you your password.
CoursesThe course areas have been devised to be as specific as possible. When you first log in your courses will be presented to you. Feel free to explore these courses. You will have access to resources that have previously been emailed out to students.
SupportIf you are experiencing problems in using the resources please contact us on +44 (0)1446 719821. The support line is open between 09:00 and 16:30, Monday to Friday. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
DownloadingTo download resources, such as assignments and syllabi, you will need to left-click on the item to open it, then choose File and save as… from the drop-down menu. You will then have to choose a place on your computer to save the file.
We suggest you navigate to My Documents, create a folder called Part-66 and save your files within the Part-66 folder. You may even wish to create a folder for each module.
Forums can be very useful to discuss elements of your study, chat and make new friends. However, when interacting online, you don’t have the extra benefits of body language to support your comments – most people will get to know the postings that are made.
To help you get to grips with online communication, we have made some basic rules which you must follow.
- Remember that all forum participants are real people, with real feelings
- Messages should be kept short – try to keep the attention of the reader
- Messages should have a descriptive subject line - try to summarise your point.
- Check with the sender before quoting from private email. – comments made in a private email may be for public consumption
- Credit other people’s work. - to present something as if it was your own is plagerism.
- Signal your emotions in messages. – In face-to-face communication our expressions can say more than our words. Use of emoticons can act as substitute.
- Avoid writing all in CAPITALS. - This can be very difficult to read
- Be sure to post your messages to the correct forum. – It can be quite embarrassing to send a private response to a forum.
