Welcome to Moodle

What is Moodle?

Moodle is a learning platform designed to provide educators, administrators and learners with a single robust, secure and integrated system to create personalized learning environments. – Source: Moodle.org

Mozilla Firefox is the recommended web browser for full functionality – in both Windows and Macintosh.  If you do not have Firefox, the free download is available at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

If you are a new employee, your Moodle account will get set up one day after your official hire date.  A representative from the Human Resources department will provide you with your network login and employee ID number.  You will need these credentials to login to Moodle for the first time.
