  • add information about yourself and your interests
  • specify whether Moodle should display your email address to others and, if so, to whom

Email display (1): Select whether to hide your email address, display it to everyone or display it to only fellow course students.

Country and Timezone settings (2): If you are living and studying in another country than Australia, select it from the Select a country drop-down list.

Note: If studying in Australia, do not make changes to Timezone, or your assignment deadlines will be different from those set by your instructors.

There are several types of assessment (assignment) in Moodle:

  • Online text – Typically used to accept simple text-based assignments within the browser window
  • File submission – Can be used to accept a range of file types including MS Word, MS Excel, PDF and Images

If you are completing an assessment or activity with a grading component, use a recommended browser on a desktop or laptop computer. Apple iPad’s and other tablets are not fully supported for use with Moodle.

When submitting an assignment in Moodle, keep in mind that if you are inactive in Moodle for too long your session will time out and you’ll need to log in again.
