Email is an important method of communication for University business, for both staff and students, and carries the same weight as paper-based communications.
Given the instant, chatty nature of emails as a communication tool it is all too easy to forget that sending an email creates an indelible record of communication that is, in many respects, as formal as a letter or any other hard copy document. As such every email that is sent is representative of you and the University. Once it is sent it cannot be rewritten or taken back, so great care needs to be taken in how the email is written; including its tone and content.
To assist you in maintaining good email communication a Moodle Course: Email Etiquette is now available for you to use. We hope that you find this useful and that it will protect you from potentially embarrassing situations.
If you cannot view learning materials this may be on purpose, as your lecturers may have hidden items on purpose or made them available at a specific date and time e.g. just before or after a lecture. If you think you should have access to learning materials within Moodle courses, please contact your lecturers within the School first.
Access to Moodle courses for modules.
If you cannot see your Moodle courses for your modules at this time, this may be on purpose e.g. Lecturers may have hidden certain courses until a specified date e.g. week 2 or week 3 of teaching.
If you think you should have access to a specific Moodle course now, please contact your lecturer or School first.
