The Moodle Virtual Learning Environment is a platform that allows us to make available to our learners a range of online course materials.
Moodle has a tracking facility that allows us to monitor your usage of the system and the results of any on-line tests that you perform through Moodle. It is important that we are able to do this to allow us to give you appropriate support during the programme. It is therefore a requirement of granting you access to the Accountancy Learning Moodle that you grant us permission to perform these monitoring activities.
Our Student Tracking Application (STA) will hold all learner data including course results. By submitting the enrolment form you consent to your details being monitored by Accountancy Learning. In the absence of a signature, submission of an enrolment form will be deemed sufficient consent.
