Welcome to EITOnline (Moodle)

Welcome to EITOnline (also known as Moodle). EITOnline is EIT's learning management system. This is where you will find the online components of your course. EITOnline consists of courses used to deliver content to enrolled students via the internet so it is available 24 hours a day. EITOnline has different levels of use throughout the various EIT programmes. Many courses will use EITOnline alongside face to face lectures whilst other courses are fully online and all communications and course content are delivered via EITOnline. Not every course run at EIT will have a presence in EITOnline so check with your lecturer if you are unsure. In this guide you will be introduced to the basics of accessing course resources and activities available in EIT Online.

There are several Student Help pages available for basic instruction on the use of EITOnline. They are presented into logical groupings in an online 'book' format. All the Student Help books are available throughout the site by hovering over (and selecting one of the topics) from the Student Help dropdown list in the dark grey menu bar at the top of every page.  The different books available via the menu bar are as follows:

Make sure you familiarise yourself with all the information in these Student Help books. If you cannot find answers to your questions in the online books then you can ask for advice from your course coordinator or the EIT Library Learning Hub staff. The Library Learning Hub staff are the central point for all student support for on campus and off campus students and if they cannot help they will endeavour to find someone who can. The following is a general guide for who you should contact in the first instance for help.

  • Course related issues such as incorrect enrolment keys, not being able to access resources in your course or problems with group access in your course must be directed to your course coordinator
  • General issues such as help with creating and uploading assignments, using Adobe Connect virtual classrooms, editing your profile, resetting your password, downloading/opening resources or advice about using EITOnline can be supported by the Library Learning Hub staff
  • Computer related issues and ongoing login issues should be directed to the IT Services Helpdesk
