Welcome to Moodle!

MacMurray College uses Moodle (an open source online classroom) to manage its online and blended classes. After you are accepted to MacMurray College, a MacMurray email account will be created for you as well as a Moodle account. All Moodle-related information will be handled through your MacMurray email account, so be sure to check it often.

The MacMurray College Moodle classroom is located at

Logging In

Click "Log in" in the upper right hand corner of any Moodle page to be taken to the login page, or you can use the login block on the Moodle home page. You can use either your Mac email address or the first twenty characters of your username (your Mac email address without "" or "") as your Moodle username. Your password is the same one you use to access your email.

If you have forgotten your password, you can use MacMurray's password management site to have it reset. If you are not sure of your account credentials, you can email the Moodle admins for assistance.

Navigating Moodle

Once you are signed in, you should be automatically enrolled in any courses you are taking. You can see your current courses by clicking Dashboard in the menu on the right side of the index page. If you are not enrolled in any courses, you may enroll yourself by finding your course in the list of currently available courses. Note that some courses require enrollment keys which you must get from your professor.
