Moodle Modules

Moodle is an online platform that allows you to access papers, contact lecturers, find due dates and submit assignments. It is important that you become familiar with how to use Moodle as it will be the main system you use while studying at Waikato. Checking Moodle regularly will mean you don't miss out on important information and updates throughout the trimester. To login to Moodle, go to and use your university username and password to sign in.

This interactive session, brought to you by the Student Learning team, will help you to get set up for completing your Uni assessments without stress and hassles.
