Know the difference between an Organisation and a Module

What is it?

Modules are essentially all your course content and only students enrolled on to your course will have visibility of the module. If you cannot find your module in your modules list, you can use the search bar in the first instance. If you still cannot see it, ask your lead instructor to check that you are enrolled on to the course. If you are, contact Help4U for assistance.

Organisations are like modules in the way that they present content and allow users to communicate, but are intended for organisational information, communities and activities and do not contribute to students’ final grades. 

What does it do?

Organisations are often used for School or discipline-based information, ad-hoc staff or student groups, student societies, training, induction, or applicant information. Organisations have no set start or end date and exist in My Dundee until the owner requests they are removed.

  • Provides an online area to keep track of organisational information and activities.
  • Also provides an online area for schools, for discipline-specific content.
  • Allows a space for student organisations to access services and information.
  • A space for the creation of ad-hoc groups.

What should I know?

Step 1: To access organisations, first, log in to My Dundee: http://www.dundee.ac.uk/students/

dundee.ac.uk/students landing page

Step 2: Select Organisations from the left-hand menu on the My Dundee Institution Page.

Step 3: Select an organisation you would like to enter.

If you cannot see the specific organisation you are looking for, type the name of the organisation into the search bar and ensure that you have the filter set to ‘All Organisations’. You can also use the drop-down list to browse categories of organisations.

Note: you cannot change the order of organisations in your list. Organisations are listed in alphabetical order and grouped by term. If you select the star icon on a frequently accessed organisation, it will add it to your favourites, and it will then appear at the top of your organisation list. This is particularly useful if you are enrolled on many different organisations.
