What is moodle?

Moodle is an Open Source Course Management System (CMS), also known as a Learning Management System (LMS), or a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

The focus of the Moodle project is always on giving educators the best tools to manage and promote learning, but there are many ways to use Moodle:

  • Moodle has features that allow it to scale to very large deployments and hundreds of thousands of students, yet it can also be used for a primary school or an education hobbyist.
  • Many institutions use it as their platform to conduct fully online courses, while some use it simply to augment face-to-face courses (known as blended learning).
  • Many use the activity modules (such as forums, databases and wikis) to build richly collaborative communities of learning around their subject matter (in the social constructionist tradition), while others prefer to use Moodle as a way to deliver content to students (such as standard SCORM packages) and assess learning using assignments or quizzes.
What is my username and password?

For example:

If your firstname is Jane and your last name is Smith, and your Banner ID is 900009999.
Your user ID will be jsmith9999.
If your last name is Smith-Alex, your ID will be jsmith9999.
If your last name is Washington, your ID will be jwashingto9999.(First 9 characters, as last name is larger than 9 characters)

Your initial password is your 6 digit date of birth- no dashes or spaces. Example: if your DOB is March 30, 1990 then your password will be 033090. (NOTE: If your password is alphanumeric and lowercase doesn't work, try uppercase. Passwords are case sensitive.)

Accounts for new students are created upon completion of the payment process at the beginning of each semester.
