  • Basic software tools

    Basic software tools


    On the Moodle space for each class you will find all the necessary documents and information to be able to participate in class. On Moodle you will also find the link to the Webex session for the class. On Moodle you can also participate in forums, upload assignments (projects and papers, etc.) or participate in evaluations. It is important to sign up on the Moodle space for each of your classes in order to receive all the necessary information and not to miss anything. Use your UniNE username and password to access Moodle.


    Via the application Webex you can participate in videoconferences, with the possibility to participate actively (chat, questions). To join a Webex session, you only need a Web browser on your computer (or on your smartphone for Webex Meetings). To organize a Webex session as a host (for example for study group meetings), you have to create an account.


    A lot of important communication is done via email. Therefore, it is very important that you check your UniNE email on a regular basis. The easiest way to access your email it to use Webmail, which does not require any particular installation. You access your email account using your UniNE username and password.

    IT support

    In case of problems with your connection or online access, please consult the IT help page of the IT department (SITEL).

  • Studying tips

    Studying tips

    Here is some advice on how to study online / via distance learning this semester.

    It is important to have the appropriate equipment. If possible, use a laptop computer and a headset/headphones to participate in videoconferences.

    Use the basic multimedia equipment. Sign up and consult the Moodle pages, test Webex and read your emails. These will be your everyday working tools.

    Participate in classes on a regular basis. Even if you are not on campus, it is important to take your classes according to the schedule to help structure your work week.

    Participate actively in your classes. There are several ways to actively participate in class, both in the face-to-face classes and the online classes (raise your hand, chat). The teaching team will explain how you can participate and how the different interactions will be organized.

    Take notes. Whether you are participating live or watching a video, take notes and write down your questions that you can ask the teacher or your friends. Whether you are attending a course in person or via distance learning, it is always important to ask questions and ask for help!

    Organize a study group with your friends/colleagues: study groups are very useful to help with understanding and learning. Organize virtual meetings (for example with Webex) to discuss, ask each other questions and help one another.

    Manage stress. It is normal to feel stressed. Make sure to plan time for relaxing and for sport activities. There is a psychological support helpdesk for students via the Social office.
