Moodle also provide a easier communication between lecturers and student, which could be achieved easily by Forum activity.
We are looking forward to see you on the next Info Day, if we haven't got to know each other yet!

Dashboard: Course Overview
Course overview on your Dashboard shows you which courses are active on the current semester, for the next Semester and also the courses that you had before at our university.
Course View: Who is my classmate?
At the beginning sometimes it is difficult to remember all names and faces.
But you don't need to worry about that. Since beside our orientation events, you could also come to the gathering event (e.g. Semester Apero) or exkursion, where you could get to know other students much better and faster. Study at HTW means not only studying but also building new friendship and connection between each other. With our reasonable amount of students/ employees you will know people around you faster here.
Here on Moodle you could also find your fellow students easily in every course, when you open the participants menu on the left side of the course view. It is also possible to write a message to any of them directly through moodle chat.
Activities: What is in my course?
Moodle provides various learn contents to help the learning process.
Mostly your lecturers would upload their documents here (references or lecture slides).
But it is also common that you would see different content/ activity on your course for example Online Exams, Quizzes, Wiki or Assignment.
How these things look and work would be explained on the next section.
Try this quiz to find out how online quizzes/ exams look like.
