ANU Wattle is the Learning Management System (LMS) used at the Australian National University to provide course materials.
WATTLE stands for Web Access To Teaching & Learning Environments. It is based on Moodle LMS as the main underpinning platform.
Most courses at the Australian National University use Wattle. The learning management system is augmented with other online learning facilities such as Turnitin (text-matching system), Echo360 (lecture recording system), and Voice Tools (audio recording tools).
In Wattle, there will be a separate site for each course you are enrolled in with key information such as assessment details, grades; tutorial enrolments; lecture recordings; weekly readings; course updates, announcements, and; other learning materials.
