Happy NOOC Year – Three ways to get ahead with your studies
Hello and Happy New Year to everyone from UoN libraries.
As we move into 2016 bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, refreshed and ready for revision, it seems like an ideal time to remind everyone about our NOOCs (Nottingham Open Online Courses) available via Moodle. The NOOCs have exercises and materials to help you make the most of UoN resources and develop study skills to complement your academic work.
Because NOOCs are online you can dip into them as you need them and complete the exercises at your own pace. The NOOCs are also a great chance to meet and share ideas, discussions and learning with students on different courses and campuses, as well as distance learning students across the globe.
There are several NOOCs live at the moment geared towards different student groups. New content is released throughout the year but you can join at any time and access materials and forums immediately.
“Your University Journey – Year 1” is aimed at first year undergraduates and explores skills for studying at university such as independent learning, note-taking, reading-strategies and working on exams and coursework – Unit 4: Good Notes for Good Writing will be live from 27 January – 10 February, however all the resources are already available to you.
You can self-enrol for this course here: http://moodle.nottingham.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=37833
For second year undergraduates we have “Your University Journey – Year 2” which builds on skills from year one as you progress into deeper learning and developing criticality.

“On Course for your Masters” is for postgraduate students and has tips and tricks on using UoN resources as well as constructing search strategies and referencing.
