What is it?

Moodle is the centrally supported online teaching and learning platform of the University of Waikato, maintained by the Centre for Tertiary Teaching and Learning (CeTTL).

When would I use it?

Staff may use Moodle to create the student's 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 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.

Recommended Browsers

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.

Mobile Apps
