You no longer need to request a LMS site.  All courses entered in Banner will have a Moodle course automatically generated. Students will be enrolled as they register (15 minute delay) starting a week before classes start each semester.

Request to add users to Moodle; create a department or group site

All requests must be submitted through the online form available at http://www.gcc.mass.edu/it/moodle/

Meta Courses in Moodle link students from multiple sections into a parent course. The parent course is where the course content is stored and all course interaction occurs. IT needs to create the meta course and link the multiple sections to this course. The sections are unavailable to students. For large classes, it is recommended faculty create groups for each of the sections linked to a meta course. Groups allow for easy management of the discussions.
