Many lecturers at DCU use the Moodle virtual learning environment to support face-to-face lectures, labs and tutorials. Moodle can be used to provide you with access to electronic teaching and learning materials (such as lecture notes and links to useful websites) as well as online activities (such as discussion forums, group assignments, reflective journals and quizzes). The use of Moodle varies from module to module. In some cases Moodle resources and activities may be additional supplements to your lectures and tutorials; in others, Moodle activities may be fully integrated into your coursework. It is important to get comfortable with this resource early in your studies. Look at the video tutorial on using Moodle for a kickstart.
