* Student Quick Start


Learning and Teaching Technology Environment (LATTE), the Brandeis learning management system, is a Moodle-based learning platform that enables faculty and students to engage in an online education environment. All of your courses will be hosted in LATTE. This guide provides an overview of the system, how your courses will look in it, and tips for navigating your courses.

Navigating and Accessing Courses

My Courses

The main area of the dashboard is called My Courses and is organized by semester. The current semester will be listed at the top of the page while past semesters will display below that. 

Active courses that have been published by the instructor appear in blue. If a course title is black and is marked “Not Visible to Students”, the instructor has not yet made that course available for student access. Only the instructor can publish a course in LATTE.

Clicking on one of your listed courses will take you to that course's homepage. It will open in the same tab rather than in a new tab.

Navigation Block

The Navigation block on the left side of the page is another way to navigate to any courses that you are enrolled in. This block will list all of your courses in seemingly random order; they are not organized alphabetically or by semester.
