Q. Why can't I see my modules on eFundi?

 

Remember that it is each individual lecturer's work to create their own module sites.

Start by checking with the rest of the class whether they have access or ask your lecturer whether the site has been created. If you have confirmation that the site was created, look for the module site in the Sites Drawer.

If you cannot find it in the Sites Drawer, navigate to your  Home page, click on the Worksite Setup option in the menu on the left of your screen and search the module there.

 

If you still cannot find the module, please contact your campus support desk.

 

Q. How do I join a public site?

To join a site, simply go to your Home page and click the Membership option in the menu on the left of the screen.  Select the Joinable Sites tab at the top. Find the site you wish to join, and click the Join link below the site name.
