About the learning platforms at the university

Cambro and Moodle are the two collaboration and learning platforms most commonly used in courses and programmes at Umeå University. Some courses or programmes use different, local platforms instead. Contact your department for information about in which platform you will find your course or programme.

What can I find in the learning platforms?

There are two learning platforms available for all teachers, students, researchers and other staff at Umeå University, Cambro and Moodle. One of these are being used for educational purposes for most of the web or campus based courses and programmes that use learning platforms.

Since the teacher responsible for the specific course/programme chooses what services and content to use of those available in the learning platform, different courses will have different appearances and contents depending on what parts of Cambro or Moodle the individual teacher finds necessary for his/her particular course. Examples of commonly used services are:

  • Current information from responsible teachers for your courses
  • Course material, in text, sound and/or video
  • Lists of teachers and course members
  • Chats, blogs, forums, e-meeting rooms
  • A digital calendar
