  • Students studying courses as part of the PLuS Alliance should refer to the PLuS Alliance Orientation website once your enrolment is finalised.

Online learning platform

Moodle is the online learning platform that is used to deliver online courses throughout UNSW.  Moodle is like a mini-website that holds the key resources for your course such the course outline, course readings, learning activities, announcements, discussion forums and a place to submit assignments.  The Moodle site for each course is usually open to students 1 week before the term starts. For more information visit the UNSW Moodle website.
