How do I get a course/organization/department shell created?

  • After the list of courses is approved and released from the Registrar's office for each semester or term, a systems operation is performed to create course shells in Moodle.

  • If you need an organizational or departmental site, or require a course shell before the system operation is performed, contact the Technology Service Desk at x5200 and a course shell will be created for you. Be sure to include the complete name of your organization, department, or course and section number.

How do I enroll or unenroll students in Moodle?

  • Students are automatically loaded into your courses directly from Colleague two weeks before the start of a semester. This is a systems operation, and does not require any action on your part. Students who drop a course are automatically processed as well. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for a student to be removed from your course.

How do I report grades at the end of the term?

  • You must enter official final grades manually into On Track. The grades in Moodle are for your reference only and are not connected to any other systems.

  • Moodle is entirely separate from OnTrack. Moodle is a Learning Management System, intended for use by faculty and students for teaching and learning purposes only. OnTrack is linked directly to Colleague, the university's enterprise operating system. When you enter grades through OnTrack, they are being entered into the university's official records.
