Eurekos is an online learning environment. It was previously known under the old name Mentorix. Its main features are:
- Blended learning
- Integrated use of multimedia and social media
- Intuitive course building
Eurekos is currently in use as one of the pilot TELT programmes. Below are some resources for new users to get started.
You can log in at eurekos.utwente.nl. Please note that there are two options:
1. Users with a UT account can log in with their m-number or s-number and standard password.
2. External users will receive an email with instruction for logging in with their email address and password.
Eurekos has published several short instruction video's to help users get started. Below is an overview of these topics.
Student videos (in Dutch)
Students can watch the following short videos to become familiar with Eurekos. They are no more than 1 minute in length.
Overview of the profile page. How to change your photo or password.
Information about the Teams page. Sharing documents, team discussion.
Announcements, discussions, menu options.
Enrolling in a course
Lecturer videos (in English)
The following videos have been created by Eurekos (also known as Mentorix ) for lecturers. We recommend that you watch them in the order below:
Instruction how to use the course builder. Setting up the basic structure and adding text and objects.
How to edit a course. Use of widgets, adding images.
One very useful feature is easy embedding of H5P content. These can be presentations, quizzes, interactive videos, etc. A quick introduction about H5P is given in this video. This is not a Eurekos video, but the functionality is the same.
We recommend watching the first 2 or 6 minutes which contain the following:
Minutes 1-2: basic introduction
Minutes 2-6: step by step instructions for creating content (content type 'Mark the Words')
Minutes 6-10: more advanced features (probably not useful)
