Moodle is the campus' Learning Management System (LMS) used to help educators create effective online course materials. It allows instructors to create items such as documents, discussion forums, assignments, and quizzes. To access your courses in Moodle, go to moodle.coastal.edu. To access your miscellaneous or resource sites, please visit learnmoodle.coastal.edu. Moodle LMS support is managed by the COOL department, meaning all Moodle support and trainings are now being offered under the Coastal Office of Online Learning.
If you are an instructor requesting a new tool to be implemented into Moodle or another technology tool that will enhance your teaching, please complete the Tool/Feature Request Form to suggest the addition. These suggestions will be taken into consideration, but are not guaranteed to be approved. For more information on how to use Moodle, please visit the Moodle Resources Libguide for Faculty.
** To avoid storage overload in Moodle (maximum course size is 2 GB), please upload video files to YuJa and link them in your course **

The COOL department has developed three course templates for Coastal faculty that may be used at your discretion within your courses. These templates have been added automatically to the Resources area of Moodle for all online faculty members. To request copies of these templates to be added into desired courses, faculty may use the Course Request tab in Moodle. Faculty should specify in the Course Title field of this form whether they desire the Basic Moodle Template (which includes the traditional weekly/topics format), the Basic Moodle Template with Tiles (includes a basic tools, but is created with the new tiles format), and the Advanced Moodle Template with Tiles (which includes advanced tools and is built with the new tiles format). You may request individual elements be copied over from either template, rather than the entire template, as well. Click here for more information on Course Templates! Please refer to the Moodle Template Guide for more information on how these templates look and function!
