Wattle

Wattle is an online environment that facilitates learning, communication and collaboration that can be used to make lecture notes, readings, digital lecture recordings and other learning resources available to your students online. Wattle consists of Moodle as the main underpinning platform, augmented with other online learning facilities such as Turnitin (text-matching system), Echo360 (lecture recording system), Voice Tools (audio recording tools) and Adobe Connect (video conferencing tool). It is also known as Web Access To Teaching & Learning Environments.

Wattle can be used to:

  • provide access to lecture notes and online resources
  • provide access to lecture recordings via Echo360
