What is it?
Moodle is the centrally supported online teaching and learning platform of the University of Waikato, maintained by the Waikato Centre for eLearning (WCEL).
When would I use it?
Staff may use Moodle to create the students online classroom as above.
Note: Waikato Management School 'NET' staff/students will use MyWeb as their online classroom.
How do I access it?
Access Moodle by opening your preferred internet browser and navigating to http://elearn.waikato.ac.nz. You can also click the 'Moodle' link from the Quick Links section of the Waikato Staff/Student start page.
Students must be enrolled in a paper to have access. Staff must be associated to / have a role in a paper to have access. Staff access is requested through the faculty's administrator.
While Moodle will work with the latest version of most Internet browsers it is recommended that you use Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Apple Safari. Do NOT use Internet Explorer as various things in Moodle will not display as they should or at all.
The official mobile app is not required to access the University's Moodle site. Moodle is now designed to be mobile and device friendly. When you view Moodle on your mobile device side blocks will drop below the course content.
Departmental Administrators will be provided access to the Staff/Role Association Tool to provide staff (lecturers and tutors) with access to the papers in Moodle. The process requires an overnight process before they have access to the paper.
To request access to the Staff/Role association tool, administrators will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your manager in the email for authorization.
Student Help files are here.
Staff Help files can be found under My Courses in the red banner at the top of the page.
