The Moodle app
The official app for Moodle, "Moodle Mobile", will allow you to do some things in Moodle. Essentially, anything 'core' to Moodle, such as downloading a file or using a forum should work, while anything plugged in, such as Turnitin, will not. Do not use any other apps, as using them may send your login details to third party companies (the Moodle Mobile app authenticates safely, using Kent systems).
If you find you are unable to access particular resources using the app, use your device's web browser to go to http://moodle.kent.ac.uk/ (or press and then website).
App download links
Using the app
Once the app is installed, you will be asked for the site address - moodle.kent.ac.uk/20xx/ (you must add the correct year). With that entered you will see the message "You need to log in to the site in a browser window" - this is for security. Once you do that, you may see the link 'Open in Moodle Mobile?' as the browser attempts to pass you back to the app. Click Open.
The app will show your modules on the front page. It does not show module codes, but you can use the search icon and search by module code or title there.
Below the module title you should use the contents link to see inside. It will take a while to load the interface, particularly if you have not used the app for a few days. You will need to use the icon to download all content, then all sections to browse.
Use the top left, three-line icon for more options, allowing you to jump to a list of your courses, notifications, messages and events.
Using the app from year to year
Make sure you change the URL for the new year! e.g. If you use Moodle Mobile in 2016/2017, you will add the URL moodle.kent.ac.uk/2016. At the start of the 2017/2018 academic year, you must change the URL to moodle.kent.ac.uk/2017. Click on the menu icon , then change site and click the pencil icon to change the existing entry (or the + to add a new one if you want to keep the previous year - you can set which site is active using the same option).
Only 'core' Moodle activities are supported by the app, but it is not always obvious which activities are core and which use an extra plugin (these are installed to provide extra features). For instance, quizzes and Turnitin inboxes cannot be used from the app. For any unsupported activities, you will see a link to the website to allow you to continue, as shown below.
