Student Quick start Guide

Moodle is Virtual Learning Environment used by CEU (often referred to as the “e-learning site”). You can use it from any computer with internet access to find readings and assignments for most of your courses.

This help material contains the basics to get started.

How to Enroll In a Course?


Moodle is connected to the University Information System, SITS
. This means, that when you register for a course in SITS, you will be automatically enrolled in the course in Moodle as well. Some courses may not be listed in SITS (or the course is open for free registering), you will be able to enroll in them directly in Moodle.

Where to Find your Registered (enrolled) Courses?

Right after logging in you may find your enrolled courses in the “My courses” / My home menu at the top navigation panel or at the “My enrolled courses” block on your Dashboard. If your professor/department would like to share some information about a course, you will see that information below the course name (syllabus, summary, etc.) even before you register in SITS as you browse all available courses in the departmental folders.



Course Overview


 

You can always find navigation links at the top section of the site and in the footer. These let you visit the folders of your department, check your courses, course contents, or find support materials, and the most important CEU links in link collections.

The navigation drawer contains the most important links in a course context, like the participants, and assignments, and this also enables browsing between sections or your current courses.

Mobile Devices / Tablets

You may use a normal web browser (Firefox, Chrome) on mobile devices and tablets. The site uses a responsive theme, so if you visit it from a smaller screen, it automatically renders the page accordingly. The top navigation will disappear, but you may still use the drawer – so you can quickly navigate to the course you want to check. Alternatively, you may download the “Moodle Mobile” app from any (Android, IOS) store for free. This app does not support activities (like assignments) but you can make readings available offline with the cloud icon.

Please note that, although most of the functions should work without problems on mobile devices, it is not recommended using such devices for important/urgent tasks. Use a desktop computer or a laptop instead, especially if you are completing an assignment or activity that will be graded.


Resources and Activities

 When you open a course, the Main section (middle) of the course page shows all the resources / materials your professor shared with you (files, folders, links, subpages) and also lists the Activities you have to take part or have to work with (forums, assignments, etc. ).
