Learning Online at UNE
UNE uses an online learning platform called Moodle along with other systems to facilitate learning online. This site includes information about Moodle and the other technologies that are used in online learning at UNE. Assessment information, including instructions for submission of assignments, completing quizzes and viewing your grades is included in a separate section. There are also sections below explaining the Academic Integrity Module and advice on support available.
There are some important things you need to know while studying at UNE. See the information below to make sure you are aware of what is available and what you need to know.
Introduction to Moodle and other Learning Technologies
Moodle is an online learning platform used to provide , discussion announcements for your unit(s). Moodle is also used for the submission of assignments.
The information below is designed to introduce you to your online learning environment, which includes Echo360 and Adobe Connect.
Academic Integrity Module
Academic Integrity Module (AIM)
Academic integrity is a core principle of the University of New England, a principle that is embodied in legislation, regulation, and as an ethical commitment of the University itself. The University has developed the Academic Integrity Module, which includes both practical exercises and links to resources designed to help you understand what it means to act with academic integrity and the consequences of misconduct.
Completing the AIM is mandatory. It is the responsibility of all students to successfully complete the AIM before you submit your first assessment. From Trimester 2, 2016 onwards, access to assignments in the unit Moodle sites will be restricted from view if you have not completed the AIM.
Once completed, the AIM badge will appear on your Moodle profile page. You only have to complete the new AIM once, so if you have completed the AIM in Trimester 3, 2015 or later you do not have to complete it again.
The AIM is in Moodle with your other units. A link to it appears in the ‘Other Moodle sites’ section of the ‘myUnits and Services’ table in myUNE, and on your Moodle My Home page. It can also be accessed directly via the Academic Integrity Module page. You will continue to be enrolled in the site while you are a UNE student to allow you to retain access to the information.
The AIM will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and includes the journeys of two students; Brenda and Damo. Complete the pathway of either student, or if you prefer, complete the quiz. Completion occurs when you reach the end of either story or achieve a score of 80% or higher in the quiz.
There are different forms of assessment used at UNE. The most common are online tests, quizzes and submission of files.
Remember to take into account time zone differences to avoid penalties for late submission. You can check what the current Armidale local time is on the UNE time block in each of your units (or this) moodle site.
