Moodle  
E-learning platform

Moodle is the e-learning platform used at Ca’ Foscari. It provides access to the resources, activities, and events of each course and allows you to receive notices shared by the course providers.

Access to Moodle [ITA] requires your unive login credentials. The first access creates a user account. Some course spaces are protected by a registration key, which the course provider generates and sends to students.

Office 365  
Creating documents

Students can sign up to use Office 365 Education for free, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, One Note and other applications from Microsoft. Applications can also be used online and collaboratively.
To activate your account, follow the instructions on the page Microsoft Office 365 [ITA] in the students area.

Padlet  
Interactive bulletin boards

Padlet is the environment for the production of individual or collective multimedia bulletin boards, used for personal projects or connected to the Moodle area of the courses. Padlet creates and collects videos, records screens, processes timelines and concept maps quickly and intuitively.

Padlet creates a user account automatically for anyone who accesses an activity on Padlet, made available in the Moodle area of each course. Access to Padlet requires your unive login credentials.
Permissions to access and edit the content vary on each Padlet board and are set by its creator. You can manage your user profile and personal Padlet projects at https://unive.padlet.org/auth/login [ITA], where you can create an account independently using the Log in with Google option and entering your unive email credentials.
Accessing your account or Padlet boards via the app on mobile devices requires you to switch to the unive login screen, using the link Backpack/Briefcase user? Login here and, on the next page, enter the domain unive.padlet.org before entering your credentials.

There is no need to install any software for PCs or mobile devices to take part in basic activities. However, advanced functions, such as video message recording and screen recording, may require you to install extensions in your browser.
Some browsers are not compatible with Padlet's advanced functions. We therefore recommend you install the app on mobile devices and use Google Chrome on PCs.
