Moodle is a web-based course management system which allows faculty to easily set up interactive online spaces for their courses without having to know how to create web pages. Faculty can upload syllabi, host discussions, accept assignments electronically, send email to their students, give quizzes, and much more. Moodle is also used by many departments, organizations and committees on campus.
To connect to Moodle, go to: http://moodle.amherst.edu. Enter your Amherst username and password in the login box.
To search for Moodle help, use the site search box and append Moodle to your search string, i.e., Moodle video.
