What are the requirements for Moodle?
Generally, the only thing you need is a computer with internet access and a web browser. However, not all features are supported in older web browsers, so we suggest you use the latest Firefox, Chrome, or Safari or Internet Explorer 9+. We highly recommend Firefox, as the BRTC Moodle site has been optimized for use with it. In addition, you may need to disable pop-up blockers (instructions on how to disable pop-up blockers can be found in the Moodle User Guide for Students). Some courses may require additional plugins and software, such as Flash, Quicktime or Acrobat Reader. Your instructor will let you know what software you need.
How do I log in?
In the login block in the left column of the home page, type your username and password:
I’ve never used Moodle. Where do I begin?
You can begin by clicking here to view the Navigating Moodle page. If you still feel lost, contact Distance Education.
How do I access my course?
After you have logged in, you should see a list of your courses in the center column (if not, see next). While you may see assignments you have due under the name of the course, to access your course, you must click on the course name which will take you to the course view page.
Why can’t I see my course(s)?
If the term has not started, your instructor may not have the class available to students yet. However, if classes have started and you are still unable to see your course(s), check Campus Connect to ensure you are registered for the class. If you are not registered, contact Student Services. If you are registered for the class, contact your instructor or Distance Education.
Why have I been dropped from my course?
You must log in and access your course by midnight on the first day of class; otherwise, you will be considered a “no show” and be dropped from the class. If this has happened to you, and you wish to still be in the class, contact Student Services and your instructor.
It has been X amount of time and my instructor still has not responded to my question.
If your instructor is not communicating with you in a timely manner, please contact the appropriate department head or Distance Education.
