Students: Get Started in Moodle
Most Fall 2014 Moodle courses opened to students on Friday, August 29th, but not all classes use Moodle. If you don't see a class you are enrolled in listed under My Courses (at left), to find out if it uses Moodle, go to your course schedule in SPIRE and click the URL icon next to the class. Even then, an instructor may choose to delay opening a Moodle course.
If you are a student who is using Moodle for the first time, or you need a refresher on how it works, our Quick Tour of Moodle for Students help page covers everything you need to know to get started with Moodle in your classes, or you can watch this video:
More Moodle videos are available on the OIT Help Center YouTube Channel
For more on how to get help with Moodle, see our Moodle Help for Students Support Articles.
Instructors: Request Your Moodle Courses
Instructors need to request a Moodle course in SPIRE each time they teach a class.
You can easily copy the content from a previous Moodle course into your new, empty course using the Import tool.
If you are not ready for students to see your course, you can hide individual elements of the course or hide the entire course. If you request a course after the start of the semester, you will need to make the course available to students. For more information, see Important Settings for your Moodle Course.
