Moodle is the CampusNet interface where your online and hybrid classes will operate. At the top section of the Moodle page, there will be tabs to different resources you may need. At the top left of the Moodle page, there is a pull-down menu that will show the dashboard, calendar, and your courses. From here you can select to go to your course page.
On the course page, you will upload assignments, interact in dialogue with the professor and other students, and take quizzes and exams. Each week you will see “Watch,” “Read,” and “Assignment” sections. These contain all tasks which are due that week: watching lectures, reading assignments, upload an assignment, or take a quiz/exam. Thus, everything the student needs to properly take a class will be found in Moodle.
