What is Wattle

Web Access To Teaching & Learning Environments also known as WATTLE, consists of Moodle as the main underpinning platform. Wattle is augmented with other online learning facilities such as Turnitin (text-matching system), Echo360 (lecture recording system) and Voice Tools (audio recording tools).

Wattle can be used to facilitate learning and provide resources to your students online. Some of the uses include:

  • providing lecture notes and online resources to students
  • giving students access to lecture recordings via Echo360
  • communication tools such as discussion forums, messaging, web conferencing and chat sessions
  • the ability to provide information about assessments, including Turnitin and online quizzes.

All Wattle users need to comply with ANU policies including the Acceptable Use of Information Infrastructure.
