AMU's digital tools


AMeTICE, Aix Marseille Enseignement avec les TICE, is AMU's pedagogical platform. To access AMeTICE, go to your ENT, then in the Pedagogy tab, select AMeTICE.

Teachers can open class areas to deposit documents, communicate with students or propose online activities . Based on the free software Moodle, designed around the principles of socio-constructivist pedagogy, AMeTICE allows, in addition to the deposit of pedagogical resources, a follow-up and a thorough accompaniment of the students, with varied activities and online evaluations.

Every year we update the version of Moodle to bring you the latest developments. This change takes place during the month of July. We also upgrade the basic functionality by adding extensions (plugins) that allow for example to add a question type in tests or new activities such as crossword puzzles.

  • The ICSB offers many training courses on its use. Do not hesitate to contact us so that we can organize some for your pedagogical team at the dates that suit you.
  • A help course on how to use the platform is available. To access it, click directly on this link or on AMeTICE, in the navigation bar, click on Teachers and then on AMeTICE Help.

2. efoliAM

efoliAM is the ePorfolio platform of Aix-Marseille University based on the Mahara open source solution. It is a complementary pedagogical tool to AMeTICE constituting a learner-centered pedagogical platform that allows the student to build his ePortfolio throughout his university education. The efoliAM platform provides you with functionalities for evaluating and monitoring learning from a perspective other than that proposed in AMeTICE: individualized and transversal monitoring, centered on the learner's path. This system thus encourages pedagogical innovation, and its use is particularly adapted for active pedagogy, project-based pedagogy and collaborative work. The eportfolio is also a good support for the constitution of competency portfolios (VAE, C2i, ...) and professional project files.

A help course on how to use efoliAM is available. The ICSB also offers training in its use. To access the course :

  • Go to AMUTICE: go to your ENT, then in the Pedagogy tab select AMUTICE.
  • To access the help, in AMeTICE, on the homepage, in the search field, type the course name "EfoliAM - eportfolio platform" or click on this direct link to the help course.

3.Anti-plagiarism COMPILATIO

The University of Aix-Marseille has implemented the COMPILATIO plagiarism detection solution. This solution allows the detection of similarities between a document submitted to it and its internal document base. The latter is made up of the main websites on the Internet (Wikipedia, etc.), document databases (online theses, etc.) or documents previously analysed by all users of the COMPILATIO system, including documents submitted by AMU, such as students' dissertations from previous years.

The analysis by COMPILATIO allows to determine a percentage of similarities between the source document and the database. It is up to each teacher to assess whether this percentage represents plagiarism or not. In order to help teachers in this evaluation work, but also students to integrate the issue of plagiarism in the writing of their documents, AMU provides our community with the following Infoplag webpage:

How to use anti-plagiarism in teaching? 
The use of the COMPILATIO system for the detection of similarities is always at the initiative of the teacher, with two modalities to choose from:

  • AMeTICE: simply create an assignment in a course on AMeTICE, activate the anti-plagiarism feature, and then ask your students to submit their work. The submitted document will be automatically submitted to COMPILATIO detection and the result of the analysis will appear in this activity.
  • COMPILATIO: by connecting directly to your COMPILATIO Magister teacher account at the following address
    Teachers must log on to the COMPILATIO platform using their AMU login.
    In this account, it is possible to analyse documents one by one or to create a "homework folder" attached to an analysis web address that can be sent to a group of students.
    The analysis reports of the documents submitted directly on the site can be consulted in the teacher's COMPILATIO Magister account environment.

4. AMUconnect

The university, as part of SDN 46 "Supporting Distance Learning", has chosen the Adobe Connect application as its virtual classroom animation tool.
