The Academic Technology team provides more than technical support - although of course we do that too. We work with you to develop your online teaching and learning practice, design and deliver online assessment and surveys, create research visualisations and more. We recommend taking a look at some of the projects we have worked on to see the scope of what and how we can help you, or get in touch to discuss your needs with us.
Contact the Help Desk for support via email to helpdesk at warwick dot ac dot uk or use the “Contact us via the online Help Desk” button above. Whether you want help using one of our tools, setting up an online exam, or developing a new and innovative module using academic technology, one of our team will be on hand to help.

Departmental contacts act as a channel between us and the department they represent. They are usually staff with responsibility for Moodle and our other tools who have been nominated to act as a contact for the department. We work with them to support their department, understand needs and requirements and plan future developments. Departmental contacts disseminate important information on issues, updates and new features to their departmental colleagues. Departmental contacts are also members of our ‘Super User Group’ forum.

We are familiar with non-interactive web pages with text, images and possibly even video. Interactive content provides a richer set of options for the user. They get more control over the flow of information on the screen and can input answers to questions to test their knowledge and understanding. H5P (HTML5 Package) makes this easy. It provides simple to use, wizard and WYSIWYG based, editing tools for creating interactive content.
The Moodle Quiz module allows the course editor to design and build self-marking online quiz activities that can make use of a range of question types. This two hour hands-on workshop will introduce trainees to the Moodle Quiz and Question Bank tools.

By the end of the session, you will understand how to create an ePortfolio consisting of a collection of pages containing external, internal and personal information, and how to share this with other people.
