Introduction to Moodle
If this is your first time using Moodle, we encourage you to review this brief tutorial to learn about the course web, how to login and access your CS classes; and other relevant resources.
1. What is Moodle for?
The purpose of this tutorial is to introduce students taking Computer Science (CS) major classes to Moodle (also known as the CS course web), the course management system used and managed by the Department of Computer Science.
NOTE: If you are looking for information regarding CS 1000, 1020, 1030, or 1300, please look for your class on CourseDen. These classes do not use Moodle.
Each Computer Science (CS) course you take will have a course page on Moodle. The course page is the central "hub" for the course. Your professor will post the class syllabus and a variety of other information and resources on this page. You may also use this page to submit assignments, take quizzes/exams, ask questions and participate in discussions, etc. (these activities will vary depending on each course).
In addition to Moodle, you may also utilize other tools and resources as part of a course such as:
- Email (always use your UWG provided email account and plan to check it regularly)
- csX Live! (to seek help/assistance from lab assistants via live chat, see the section in this guide for more information)
- Google Hangouts (some CS faculty may offer online office hours through Hangouts)
- CS lab facilities
- various other Internet/cloud-based applications/services
