How to submit a thesis to Moodle
Step 1: Before you submit your thesis please make sure you have a signed and dated Statutory Declaration inside your theses. You can download it here: Statutory declaration
Step 2: Log in to Moodle https://elearning.jacobs-university.de (link is external) with your user account aka CampusNet login. Once you've successfully logged in, you will be in Moodle’s Dashboard where you will find your course overview and the course: Thesis (Study) (Semester)
Step 3: Click on your thesis course. Once inside the course review the information there and when ready click on 'Draft Thesis Submission' and submit a thesis draft - the document you have been working on which will result in your thesis. This will give you access to click on 'Thesis Submission (CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT) Turnitin Assignment 2'. Please read all the information carefully.
Step 4: Click on 'Submit Paper'. Fill your thesis title and name of your supervisor(s) under ‘Submission Title’ and click on the space provided to search and upload your thesis
Step 5: Under ‘Choose License’ please select ‘All rights reserved’, and then click on 'Select this file'
Step 6: This will bring you to the ‘Submission Paper’ window. Here you will write again your Thesis Title and Name of Supervisor(s) under Submission Title. Then click on ‘Add Submission’.
Step 7: You will get a Digital Receipt of your submission. You can close this window either by clicking ‘close’ or hitting the escape button on your keyboard.
Step 8: Congratulations! You have now submitted your thesis. You will be able to see your thesis under ‘My submissions’ and review your similarity report.
Step 9: Your supervisor(s) will be emailed automatically that you have submitted your thesis. Once we receive the grades from your supervisor(s), they will be entered on Campusnet.
Things to keep in mind:
- You can resubmit your thesis and check your similarity score until the assignment's deadline. After the third resubmission there is a 24 hour delay on your similarity score
- There is no ‘resubmit’ button, in order to resubmit, please just submit your paper again. There is also no ‘delete’ button
- If you have submitted a draft but do not plan to submit the final version until the deadline, please contact Registrar Services so we can delete the draft, otherwise this will count as your final version
