Loop Information

 

Loop for Staff

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).

Features of DCU LOOP include:
    • Upload lecture notes
    • Assignment submission and grading
    • Discussion forum
    • Online quiz

After you log in the "Course overview" block in the centre of your dashboard will display all the modules you have access to. Use the filter to choose to view "All" courses and not just those "In progress", "Future", "Past" and so on.

Why can’t I see the modules that I registered for?

Please contact Registry if a module that you have registered for is not appearing in your list of courses. Material will be made available on course modules by lecturers when classes begin. If you are unable to see the module content, please contact your lecturer to make it available.
