Loop (formerly Moodle)

Loop is DCU’s Online Teaching Environment which provides staff and students with access to electronic teaching and learning materials (such as lecture notes and links to useful websites) and activities (such as discussion forums, group assignments, reflective journals and quizzes).

The way that Loop is used in DCU varies from module to module: in some cases Loop resources and activities may be additional supplements to lectures and tutorials; in others Loop activities may be fully integrated into your coursework.
