The course page is where you can access course content such as digital resources and activities.
Course pages may differ in appearance depending on the tutor, however please rest assured the functionality is very similar.
Course content is usually divided into sections, by topic or by week. Within these sections, tutors can provide a range of resources and activities to support your studies.
Example resources and activities
- General module information
- Announcements (copies also sent by email)
- Lecture notes/handouts (e.g. PDF, Word, PowerPoint)
- Reading lists
- Web links
- Video content, including lecture recordings
- Discussion forums
You can also filter content by activity type by clicking the This module link in the site menu.
You can download files from Moodle in a variety of alternative formats, wherever you see the alternative formats icon.
This capability is brought to you by a digital accessibility tool called Blackboard Ally.
