Brescia University UCTL


In preparation, you should make sure you have tested your access using the following equipment at home:

  • Laptop or desktop computer.
  • Microphone – this may be built into your laptop or computer, or you may use an external device such as a USB microphone or headset. (A headset is highly recommended.) 
  • Webcam – a camera may already be built into your laptop, but you can also use an external USB camera for video conferencing. 
  • Internet – If you plan to join a synchronous session, it is best to be connected to the internet instead of using WiFi. 

Be prepared! It’s best to know these options will work for you before you actually need them. Test access to your equipment and resources at home before the need arises. 


Remember to check your BU email regularly. Your instructors are likely to send announcements through email as well as through the announcements in LMS Moodle. When communicating with your instructors, it is good practice to label the subject line with the course number, title, your last name, and a specific subject. 

Access Course Resources

Log in to LMS Moodle to see the latest announcements, posts, and assignments for your courses. For help on the features in Moodle please see the online orientation demo as well as our FAQ for answers to common questions.
