Quick start

Login with your University access data in the Moodle of the Jade University of Applied Sciences -

The Dashboard shows your courses in the overview. Here you can:

  • use the filter function (future/current/past courses).
  • mark courses as favorites
  • see current dates

In the Course room search you can enter module names or names of lecturers.


Courses are organized into course spaces (similar to folders). The path navigation in Moodle is used for orientation. You can always see which course and course areas you are in.

Collecting work

The assignment activity module enables a teacher to communicate tasks, collect work and provide grades and feedback.
