We look forward to teaching you this year, and wish you all the best in your chosen programme of study. MAINZ tutors are passionate about music and audio, so use your time here to gain valuable insight into the music industry whenever you can, both in AND out of the classroom. If you have any questions or need any support please don't hesitate to contact us via MOODLE or by making an appointment at reception with any of our support and academic staff, most of whom are located on Level 3.

Using MOODLE is very important at MAINZ. You should use MOODLE to :- discuss the course with your class (via the forum), message individual students and tutors, upload assignments, check originality of your work, engage with online resources, find your timetable and view the academic calendar and other vital information for 2017. You can download the free MOODLE app for your device or login from your PC.

Please check your Moodle course forums!

Some students have set their preferences to 'single daily digest' email of forum posts and so are not always getting notifications. Set this to single email per post so that you receive them correctly (under your profile settings).

Also please install the Moodle Mobile app on your iPads and phones - it's free and available for Apple & Android devices. When you do, under App Settings/Synchronization, make sure that "Allow sync only when on Wi-Fi" is NOT enabled (i.e. not green).
