How do I find my course in Moodle as a Faculty member? [Moodle version 3.2]

 
 

There are a variety ways to locate your course in Moodle. Once you have logged into Moodle, all* of the courses to which you have access (as either a student or instructor) will be listed in your “My Courses.”

*If you are a program chair, a dean, or an administrator with greater access than simply to the courses in which you are enrolled as a student or instructor, this will not be the case. You most likely have access to courses not listed in your “My Courses” block. Follow this FAQ on accessing your courses as a Department/Program Chair.

Note: you can click on any image to view a larger version of the image.

To access your courses, you must be logged into Moodle to view them. Use your Trinity network/email username and password. For example, if your name is Jane Doe, your email username might be doej, which you would enter in the Username field. Enter the same password as you use for your email.

Remember your username is everything before the ‘@’ symbol in your email address.

 

“My courses” list – Left Navigation Panel

Once you are logged in, you can find a list of courses to which you have access in the left navigation panel. This is the left column with the purple background. If you do not see the left column with the purple background, click on the menu icon with the three lines in the upper left corner to expand the column.

“My courses” block – Right Column

Your “My Courses” block is in the right column, under the “Main menu” block:

All courses are loaded into Moodle as unavailable to students. This means that when new courses appear in your “My Courses” block, they will be gray, and listed in alphabetical order AFTER any active courses (which are also listed alphabetically here):

“My courses” section – Center of Main Page

You can also look for your course in the main section of the Moodle homepage, underneath the “Search courses” box, in the “My courses” section. After the active courses, you will see your inactive courses listed here in reverse chronological order:

“Search courses” box

If you are still not seeing the courses you expected, you can always search for them use the “Search courses” box:

The search feature will return all available to students courses which meet that criteria and all unavailable courses to which you have access that meet that criteria.

If you click on an available course in which you are not enrolled and to which you do not have access, you will receive the following error message:

“All courses…” link

If you are still not seeing the courses you expected, you can also browse the courses available through the “All courses” link at the bottom of your “My Courses” block in the right column or “My Courses” list in the center column:

Once on the “All courses” page, expand the Academic Session in which you wish to look:

You will see all available courses and all unavailable courses to which you have access:

If you click on an available course in which you are not enrolled and to which you do not have access, you will receive the following error message:

Unable to Locate Course

If you still cannot locate your course, please check double-check to see if you can see your roster in Self-Service, https://selfservice.trinitydc.edu/.
