Frontpage Graphical Advertisements
Advertising space on Moodle is primarily reserved for the communication of important information to learners from the Learner Services & Information Centre and Learning Resource Centre. We currently operate 2 spaces for graphical advertisements on the frontpage of Moodle.

  • Banner - 480 x 100 (Max. WxH) - One week validity
  • Side - 200 x 300 (Max. WxH) - One day validity

Graphical advertisements must be provided in jpg format to with details of when the advertisement should run from. Space cannot be guaranteed and requests may be subject to prioritisation.

Frontpage News Articles (Student News)
News articles are primarily used for celebrating achievement and highlighting important (past) events and occasions. It is important to avoid words like "today", "yesterday", "tomorrow", etc as news articles will remain in an archive and will be accessable via RSS.

Photographs and images can be included but must not make up the entire article.

  • Photos - 450px(Max. H)

News articles will also run on the plasma screen via the RSS feed, however this is limited to the text only.

News stories and press releases should be sent to including (where possible) relevant photos, dates and times. Stories should be relevant to current learners.

Forum (Message Board) Advertisements
