Moodle Basics

Moodle Basics is a quick reference guide intended to show users how to log in, find and manage their courses.

Logging into Moodle

Go to the Moodle web interface at: Note: there is no www in the address.

On the opening page (below), login in using your email username and password.

Finding your Courses

Once you’ve logged in, your personalize Moodle page will load. (See picture below.) This page will include links to the Gustavus WebMail, Campus Directory, and Moodle Help in the top left corner, but will also find a list of all the classes you teach during the school year in the lower left corner of the page. Clicking on any of these class links will allow you to set up that class in Moodle.


Editing Your Classes

Once you’ve clicked on a class link, you can then begin customizing your course by adding files, linking to resources, creating quizzes, forums, etc. To begin editing your course, click on the "Turn Editing On" button, located in the upper right-hand corner.
