About this website

This website will be home to a variety of academic support resources for Dunboyne College students.

Over the course of the year, the Academic Support team will give workshops in the following areas:

  • How to read an assignment brief

  • How to use Moodle, Office and OneDrive to assist in your studies

  • How to research and reference in your assignments

  • How to approach academic writing

  • Approaches to help you with time management

  • Exam study skills

You will receive announcements from Moodle about each of these resources as they become available. This website will be added to throughout the year as well, to provide step by step guides and extra help in all of these key areas and more.
