Most Spring 2017 Moodle courses will open to students on Friday, January 20th, but not all classes use Moodle. If you log in and a class you are enrolled in is not listed in the My Courses block, to find out if your course uses Moodle, go to your course schedule in SPIRE and click the URL icon (Icon showing a screen and "URL") next to the class. Note: Your instructor may choose to delay opening a Moodle course or may open it early.

If you are a student who is using Moodle for the first time, or would like a refresher on how it works, see our Quick Tour of Moodle for Students help page for everything you need to know to get started with Moodle in your classes.

Instructors: Request Your Moodle Courses

Instructors need to request a Moodle course in SPIRE each time they teach a class. To copy the content from a previous Moodle course into your new course use 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.
