Faculty & Staff Online Resources

Need to know how to do something in Moodle, Classroom Technology, Online Pedagogy and more, see Online Learning or below


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

“Meta Courses” in Moodle links 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.

Getting Started with Moodle for Instructors
This tab contains handouts to guide you through the development of your Moodle course.   All courses for January and Spring 2012 will automatically be created in Moodle.  The documents are PDFs.
