External Examiners

If you are an External Examiner working with a Faculty or School at York St John University, you may require access to our VLE - Moodle. Moodle is an environment which is used to provide students with access to learning resources and activities related to their taught credit bearing modules. Moodle is also the system which is used to enable e-submission, marking and feedback for all appropriate summative assignments.

To ensure that you can see the relevant modules in Moodle, you must completed all of the steps below. As an External Examiner, it is your responsibility to:

  1. Create an account in Moodle. [View PDF guide | View video screencast]
  2. Notify your administrative faculty/school contact that you now have an account in Moodle.
  3. Notify your administrative faculty/school contact of which modules you require access to.

It is your administrative contact's responsibility to:

  1. Ensure that you have the correct level of access to the relevant modules in Moodle.
  2. Notify you when you have been added to the relevant modules in Moodle.

Please note, if you have been given a temporary IT account to enable you to login to the YSJ computers, this will not enable you to gain access to Moodle. You must still complete the process outlined above.



If you are having technical problems, please contact a member of the Technology Enhanced Learning team at tel@yorksj.ac.uk

If you have successfully created an account, but now require access to modules in Moodle, please get in touch with your administrative contact.
