The IT University currently offers two learning platforms for support and management of courses; The official platform, The Course Blogs, and LearnIT [still in test] to be launched on January 1st, 2014.

The Course Blog is ITU's official learning platform build on the publishing platform WordPress. A dedicated blog is automatically created for every course before a new semester begins. The course responsible will receive an auto-generated e-mail with a link to the course as well as instructions for how to start using it.

The course blog is editable with any browser and can be accessed 24/7. Locate the course URL for any course blog via the Course Base in my.itu.dk

For more help on how to edit, add users, add files, etc. please, visit The Visual Blog Manual.
LearnIT is ITU's NEW learning platform set to launch for all courses in January 2014. LearnIT will herefter replace the Course Blogs, which will then no longer be supported.

Five facts about LearnIT:
  1. LearnIT is based on the open source software platform, Moodle.
  2. Moodle was originally developed by Martin Dougiamas to help educators create online courses with a focus on interaction and collaborative construction of content, and is in continual evolution.
  3. Several Danish universities, incl. AAU, CBS and RUC, use it as their platform to conduct fully online courses, while some use it simply to augment face-to-face courses (known as blended learning).
  4. Use the activity modules (such as forums, assignments and quizzes) to build richly collaborative communities of learning around a subject matter.
  5. LearnIT is web-based and accessible 24/7/365
