  2. Threaded Discussions
  3. Assignments and Gradebook

Request a Moodle User Account

If you are an authorized user, and would like to request a new user account, click the link to make a course request (requests may take up to two business days). If you would prefer to submit multiple user requests at once without using the online form, please request a special csv file from Moodle support. Every submission must be properly formatted in order to be processed. Failure to properly format the csv file will either not be accepted, or returned for corrections.

Request a Moodle Course Shell for Non-Regularly-Scheduled Courses

All courses that are regularly scheduled in the consortium's student information systems automatically have shells in Moodle.  If you are teaching a special reading course or an other non-regularly-scheduled course, please complete the Moodle Course Shell Request form.
