Moodle  
Virtual classrooms

Moodle is the e-learning platform used to access the resources, activities and events of each course. In fact, each course has a corresponding Moodle area, which can be used for remote activities and, during lessons in person, as a support tool for group work, individual exercises, tests and exams.

Access to Moodle [ITA] requires your unive login credentials. First access creates a user account, used to participate in the activities, receive the notices published on Moodle by the teachers and access the Zoom lesson calendar.
Some courses are protected by a registration key, created and sent to students by the teacher.

Zoom  
Streamed video conferences and webinars

Zoom is the video conferencing platform linked to the Moodle teaching areas; it allows all participants to remotely attend class activities, group works, discussions and presentations. It can be used as a video conferencing platform for remote courses or blended ones as well (both online and in presence).

The user profile and the video conferencing settings can be managed by clicking on this link https://unive.zoom.us/signin [ITA] (unive credentials are needed for the access). For new users, the Zoom account is automatically created when the participant joins the video conference, by using the Zoom calendar related to a specific Moodle course.

To attend a video conference, the user should download and install the Zoom desktop app and/or the mobile app. Once downloaded, the Zoom installer starts automatically upon the first access; however, the user can also decide to install the app in advance to create personal events and run technical tests.

In case of problems of access to University meetings or, more specifically, online courses, please refer to these guidelines. To actively attend the meetings, the use of a microphone and camera is required.

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.

Kahoot  
Learning quiz

Normally, participation in activities prepared by teachers on Kahoot does not require you to create a specific account. To start, just enter the game pin provided by the teacher on the website https://kahoot.it or, on mobile devices, the app available to download at https://kahoot.com/home/mobile-app.
