Moodle is the online learning environment that UNSW uses to support its teaching. All courses at UNSW will have a Moodle page. All relevant information related to your course will be available on the Moodle page. This will include the course outline, readings, additional course materials, recorded and filmed lectures, contact information for your lecturers and discussion forums. Please note some courses will have more content than others depending on how the course is delivered (ie online, face to face or blended).
You will also submit all your assessment via Moodle and Turnitin. Further instructions on how to do this can be found on the UNSW Moodle Support.
Moodle course pages are released to students approximately 1 week before commencement of classes. We highly recommend you watch the Moodle support videos and become familiar with how Moodle works at the beginning of semester.
New students are highly recommended to use software to manage references and citations (which will make your life easier when writing your assignments). UNSW provides EndNote FREE to all students with further information on how to download EndNote available on UNSW IT services.
Holly Seale from the School of Public Health and Community Medicine provides an overview of using EndNote to manage references and citations.
