MacMurray College uses Moodle (an open source online classroom) to manage its online and blended classes. Moodle is available on or off campus and allows students and professors to work together in a learning environment at their leisure.

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.

Updating Your Information

You can edit your profile and preferences by clicking the arrow next to your name to the right in the menu along the top of each page. In the resulting drop down menu, click "Preferences".

The resulting page will give you links to help personalize your Moodle experience.

Course Enrollment

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 or My courses in the Navigation block, located by default on the side of the page.

If you are not enrolled in any courses, you may enroll yourself by finding your course in the list of currently available courses on the home page. Note that some courses require enrollment keys which you must get from your instructor.

Additional Help

The Moodle Help page contains detailed documents meant to be used as tutorials to help ease users into Moodle.
