How to access LEO

Open all

Wherever you are, if you have internet access, you should be able to access LEO.

Student Portal

There are numerous links for LEO throughout the ACU website, including the 'current students' link located on the ACU homepage.

Here are some changes you'll notice in the student portal:

  • You'll be able to access specific pages within the portal from external links! This means you won't need to navigate to that page from your homepage
  • LEO will have single sign-on! This means that when you're in the portal, and access LEO, you won't need to sign in again!

To access LEO, click on the 'Current students'

Accessing LEO from outside the Portal:

LEO can be accessed by typing the URL leo.acu.edu.au into the address bar of your browser.

The recommended minimum/supported browsers are:

  • Google Chrome 30.0
  • Firefox 25.0
  • Safari 6
  • Internet Explorer 9 (IE 10 required for drag and drop of files from outside the browser into Moodle)

You and your students can also view and interact with LEO content on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. Some functionality and editing capabilities, however, may be restricted on these devices.

Occasionally we come across compatibility issues with some of the tools, but as long as you are using one of the browsers above, the issues should be minimal.

Take time to familiarise yourself with the interface.

Some of the things to look out for on the Home page are:

  • The 'Navigation' link
  • The 'My units' link
  • Your name at the top of the screen is also a menu for personal settings
  • The 'Technical Support' link

Occasionally we come across compatibility issues with some of the tools, but as long as you are using one of the browsers listed above, the issues should be minimal.

The first time you log into LEO and/or at the beginning of each semester you must agree to the 'site policy agreement' including the 'Declaration of Originality and Academic Integrity' to access the LEO homepage and continue using LEO.
