Summer 2021 Moodle Tips

Here are some useful Moodle Basics tips to help you get organized as Summer sessions get underway!

Accessing Purchase College Moodle

Activate your Purchase College account (or to reset your password), if needed. Visit Online Account Activation/Password Reset and choose the appropriate “Activate” or “Reset” option.

Once your Purchase College account is active and working, you will have access to Moodle as well as Purchase College email, MyHeliotrope, Library resources, etc.

Login to Moodle with your Purchase College username (usually firstname.lastname) and your Purchase College account password. Detailed login directions are available at our Moodle Basics help guide.

If you are not yet associated with any course spaces on Moodle, please contact the Office of the Registrar to confirm that you are properly tagged as the instructor of record on your course(s).

Consult the COVID-19 Remote Teaching Resources Guide for information specific to remote instruction.

Managing Course Participants

If you notice inconsistencies between your schedule / class lists in MyHeliotrope and enrollments in Moodle, you will need to create a ticket using the CTS Helpdesk Work Order System (WOT) to request that data be synced between the two systems.
Please note that the TLTC cannot resolve enrollment issues.
