1. Greetings

Dear Students!

Our University’s E-learning system is accessible from anywhere via the Internet at  https://elearning.uni-mate.hu/.
In this document we would like to provide a few basic information to help you navigate in the system.
The e-learning system appears in the language that is set up for your browser on your device. If it appears in Hungarian, you can change it to English.


You can change the language before login by clicking on the language you prefere.
After login you still can change the language if you open the menu by your initials and click on Nyelv (Language)


2. Logging in

The e-learning portal can be accessed by University students by typing their Neptun code and the password previously set on the site JoKeR.

First time users’ login

Prior to anything else, activating your user account is required on the site joker.uni-mate.hu
First, switch the language to English and sign in.


MATE ID is your Neptune code
Password: the letters "Ne" and 8 digits of your date of birth in this order: NeYYYYMMDD

YYYY stands for the year, MM for the month and DD for the day of your birthday.

After logging in, you have to change the pre-set password, and by changing it, you’ll activate your MATE account. (Note: If you have previously accessed MATE Wi-Fi, e-learning or Outlook, you already activated your account and created a password other than the pre-set one, so You don’t need to do it again.)

From then on, the Neptun code and the new password can be used to access university systems including the E-learning system, outlook account and Wi-Fi. (The password replacement does not affect the Neptun system.)

If you have problems logging in, you should contact the Information Technology Directorate at the address helpdesk@uni-mate.hu .


3. Profile data

After the first login, you can view your own profile by selecting the "Profile" drop-down menu under the user name. Your personal data from the university registration system are automatically uploaded to the E-learning portal.

In case your name or email address is incorrect, send email to helpdesk@uni-mate.hu .

If your are viewing your Moodle account while away from Campus in a different time-zone than Hungary, it may be useful to view your due dates and events in the time zone in which you are currently located, so that you do not have to make adjustments for time difference each time reading your timeline. Go to profile settings, and select the country then click on “Update profile” Don’t forget to set it back if you return/move to Hungary.

4. The University e-mail address, forwarding to a different address. E-learning messages in the e-learning account

The university e-mail address is set up automatically to your E-learning account. This e-mail address appears in your profile information (it constitutes of your name and @stud.uni-mate.hu or @phd.uni-mate.hu). All E-learning messages arrive to this e-mail address, so it is important to activate and periodically check your mailbox or set up message forwarding to your private email address.

The university e-mail service is available as follows:

Teachers inform you by email or Neptun messages on their courses launched in the E-learning system. Not all Neptun courses are launched in the E-learning system, so when needed, you should ask for information about a course directly from the instructor.
