Access to Notes

When you register, a number of things happen:

  • You are added to a 'Gdmeng' mailing list, which is the global mailing list for all taught postgraduate programmes within the School (next day). Note: This is your DCU email address (not that which you may have specified to the application system) - all correspondance with students is performed using their DCU email addresses.
  • You are added to the password files for each of the online modules for which you are registered. (next day) However, please note that lecture material will *NOT* be made available until the first lecture takes place on campus. Please do not request access to notes in advance of this time, as many lecturers are working on their course material, updating their notes.
  • At the beginning (ie. in the first week) students are added to the module mailing lists for which they are registered.  However, after this time, if you have registered late or if you have completed a change of module form, you should manually subscribe or unsubscribe lists appropriately.  This is your responsibility.  You can find links to module mailing list homepages above.
  • As there is a two week 'change-of-mind' period at the beginning of each Semester, during which students may change module selections, 'Guest' passwords are set up for some of the modules. However, for the majority of modules you should be able to access course material regardless of the modules for which you are registered. If you are having any problems regarding access, then please contact David Molloy directly to request access.
  • If you are registered incorrectly, you should contact the Registry at DCU to get your registration details amended.
  • If you are correctly registered, and/or are having problems with accessing notes, please contact David Molloy directly.
