Durham University Online
The virtual learning environment ‘Durham University Online' (duo) is a collection of online resources including links to web pages, lecture notes and summaries, communication tools like email and assessment features such as formative multiple choice quizzes. Your login area on duo is where you can access all online course materials offered by your lecturers. Soon after your registration details have been entered onto the University's student records system (Banner), you will automatically be enrolled by the IT Service on the duo courses related to the modules that you are taking. Details of how to logon to the duo system are given at https://duo.dur.ac.uk. Individual lecturers will inform you during the year about its use for their courses. Students taking physics modules will also automatically be enrolled on the duo organisation ‘Physics Undergraduates', which contains administrative and other information that applies to all undergraduate students in the Department. The Department will also make use of the Announcements area in duo to pass on important information to you so please get into the habit of logging in at least twice a week.
The Department of Physics has a Policy on the Provision of Material on duo, which describes a basic framework for consistency of use amongst teaching staff, with the aim of maximizing the effectiveness of duo for users.
