Moodle is Connecticut College’s Learning Management System. Faculty can use Moodle to deliver course materials including text, audio and video, collect assignments, conduct discussions, post grades, communicate with students or do any number of course-related activities online.
Each regularly scheduled course is assigned a Moodle site to use for each semester. Some types of courses (independent study courses, honors study courses, music lessons) are not automatically assigned a Moodle site, but one can be created upon request.
Policies and Procedures
Course Site Enrollment
Students and faculty are automatically enrolled in Moodle course sites when they are enrolled in the course in Banner/Self-Service. Enrollment is updated at least once per day, during regular business hours.
If you are a faculty member and you do not see your course listed in Moodle, please confirm that you are listed as the instructor in the online schedule of courses and if not, contact the registrar or your department chair. If you are listed as the instructor in the online schedule but do not see the corresponding Moodle course site, please submit a WebHelpDesk ticket.
If you are a student and do not have access to a site in Moodle for a course in which you are registered, please confirm that the course is using Moodle. Some faculty elect not to make use of the Moodle site for their course. If you believe the course is using Moodle and you still do not have access to the Moodle site at least one business day after registering for the course, please submit a WebHelpDesk ticket.
Course Site Retention and Access
Students will only have access to Moodle sites for the courses in which they are currently enrolled. Student access to Moodle sites will be disabled within one month of the last day of the semester.
Moodle sites for the current academic year, plus the three previous academic years, will remain active and available to faculty members. Faculty are encouraged to keep local copies of all important course-related files, including the course gradebook, and any files that have been uploaded to the Moodle course site.
Other Moodle Sites
Moodle is also available for use by committees, working groups, departments or any other group for purposes not directly related to a specific academic course. To request a site, or for more information, please contact Diane Creede or submit a WebHelpDesk ticket.
The retention policy for non-course sites is the same as that of regular course sites. Sites for the current academic year, plus the three previous years, will remain active and available.
Moodle Issues and Enhancement Requests
Students, Faculty or Staff experiencing issues or problems with Moodle should initiate a ticket in WebHelpDesk. Inquiries regarding new features or enhancements, or the use or functionality of existing features should be directed to Diane Creede.
