The University is very keen to use technologies to support eLearning. To support blended and distance learning, the University has been using Learning Management System (LMS) for eLearning since 2000. Now we are using Moodle as our LMS, and currently we are using Moodle version 3.5 .
OCIO and LTTC work closely together to support our LMS and other eLearning platforms.
The Moodle LMS is setup as follows:
- Integrate with our Student Information Systems (SIS) so that courses will be automatically created according to the SIS.
- Front-line support and training are provided by the Centre for Learning, Teaching and Technology (LTTC).
To access Moodle LMS, please visit http://moodle.eduhk.hk.
Similarity Check Systems:
- Students can use Turnitin, a similarity checking system that is fully integrated with Moodle LMS, for assignment checking. Turnitin similarity checking is only supported in Moodle LMS.
- VeriGuide Text Similarity Detection System is a web-based similarity checking system for academic and research works. Staff can apply a VeriGuide accounts to use the system. For details, please refer to https://moodle.eduhk.hk/course/view.php?id=38024.
