Moodle-Exam available for you
The Moodle-Exam infrastructure is available since this week at UNIL and an own space has been made available to each faculty. This platform is intended to host the organization of the online exams for the June session. All the information is available via the engineers or pedagogical assistants of your faculty.
A series of tutorials related to the use of ZOOM and Moodle-Exam will be available on the Teach page later this week.
If you have not already done so, we invite you to take a look at the vademecum for the remote evaluation of students produced by the UNIL Teaching Support Centre (CSE) and UNIDISTANCE.
Together for a "VIRAL" experience
The current health crisis raises many questions, debates, social, political, medical and environmental realities. This is why UNIL is launching the blog "VIRAL", designed to follow, enlighten and document the COVID-19 crisis. Don't miss the call for participation! More information.
Help students manage their workload
At a time when many students are highlighting, at different levels, the problems they encounter in relation to their workload, the Teaching Support Centre (CSE) offers the teaching community a series of recommendations via a short video with a downloadable fact sheet.
New WOOCLAP tutorials
WOOCLAP is an animation tool for your synchronous teaching which is available since September 2019 via the Portfolio of Digital Tools for Teaching at UNIL. In order to allow you to better manage its use, we offer three tutorials made available via a playlist.
Staying in good shape, a priority at UNIL
Lausanne University Sports is expanding its online offer. Two new features await you: a weekly programme of live lessons and videos, produced in collaboration with the Teaching Support Centre (CSE). Members of the sports management and sports coaches offer exercises that you can easily do at home. More information.
