Learning Resources

For most units all material will be online, while a few units use a combination of online with printed items and/or a CD. As well as this material there may be texts or other items that you need to purchase.

Course and units catalogue

Course and unit information is available in the Courses and Units Catalogue. Links to the catalogue are provided on the UNE homepage and within your units moodle site.


As a current student you have access to myUNE, through which you can access your online units moodle sites (UNEonline), manage your enrolment, change personal information and access many useful functions. You can log in to myUNE from the UNE homepage using your UNE username and password.

The myStudy tab contains a table on the top right corner of the page. This table has a list of your current units down the side and columns that relate to particular services, such as UNEonline (moodle) and Information (Course and Unit Catalogue). These columns only appear if there is an item that is currently available for that 'service' for at least one of your units.

Accessing your units' online sites

All units have a moodle site that may include features such as unit announcements, a discussion forum, quizzes and learning resources.

Moodle sites are usually released one week before teaching commences, though some units may be released earlier. In the myStudy tab in myUNE, click on the icon in the UNEonline Units column for the site you wish to go to. Alternatively, you can go directly to Moodle using this link moodle.une.edu.au. This will bypass myUNE and will take you directly to the UNE Moodle home page. Log in using the button at the top right of the page or the Login link in the header. You will then be taken to your Moodle home page with a list of the sites to which you have access. Refer to Access to Moodle for further information.

You are welcome to access the sites from the week prior to teaching commencing and become familiar with the unit site and view the content that is available at that time. Be aware that teaching staff may not be available until the first day of teaching to answer your questions and content for some units may continue to be added as the trimester progresses.

Printed and other resources

Most units provide all learning material online. In some instances, a unit may have a printed item, CD or DVD to supplement the online material. In these cases these items will be distributed to on-campus students in lectures and off-campus students by Australia Post. As well as this material there may be texts or other items that you need to purchase.

Prescribed and recommended texts

A list of the texts (prescribed and recommended) is available via the Courses and Units Catalogue. The information is located on the 'Unit pages' under the 'Prescribed Material' heading for each unit. The textbook information page has links to places to purchase texts.

Library services

What can the Library do for you?

Dixson Library provides access to vast online resources. You can access online journals, ebooks, borrow books, obtain copies of articles and exam papers, and request advice from librarians on search strategies and information tools to use.

Readings and past exam papers / eReserve

Readings for most units are provided through eReserve, the Dixson Library's online database.

eReserve is the University Library's electronic reserve, which provides access to book chapters in PDF format and links to journal articles. These items have been selected by the Unit Coordinator for individual units as being high-demand items. Items in eReserve are organised according to unit code. eReserve files for your unit can be accessed by clicking on the icon in the e-Reserve Readings column on myStudy, from the eReserve page or from the link in the Unit readings block in your units' Moodle site.

eReserve items are not available for all units. Some articles may be available before the start of trimester, however new articles may be added and old articles deleted during the trimester. Sometimes readings may be sent to you via email.

Learning materials for intensive schools starting before the beginning of trimester

If you have an intensive school before the start of Trimester check to see if you can access the unit's Moodle site as there may be information posted about the intensive school. If hard copy resources are required, these may be mailed to you prior to the school, or the unit coordinator may choose to hand the materials out at the start of the intensive school.

For more detailed information about intensive schools including a link to timetables see the intensive schools page.

Printed copies of electronic resources

Alternative formats of learning materials will not usually be provided unless you have grounds for an exemption. Exemption may be granted in the following circumstances:

  • You have a verifiable medical condition that prevents use of a computer.
  • You live in a remote location where internet access is not available.
  • You are currently in a correctional facility and are unable to access the internet.

If you wish to claim an exemption on any of these grounds, believe that you have other grounds for an exemption, or would like more information please contact the Special Needs and Equity Officer, Student Support, by phoning (02) 6773 2897 or sending an email to student.equity@une.edu.au.

Disability Support

If you have a temporary or permanent impairment or illness which adversely affects your ability to study, access University resources or fully participate in University activities, you may request assistance from Student Assist or from other organisations such as Vision Australia. If this applies to you, your first point of contact should be the UNE's Disability Adviser. For more information, see Student Disability Support.
