Top 10 Moodle Tips for Online Students



Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) is the LMS (Learning Management System) that PCC uses to deliver its online courses.


You are responsible for all material posted in your online course.  You should take the initiative to read all material posted and complete all assignments.  If it's visible you are responsible for it.


If you see you are not going to be able to successfully complete your online course please be sure to do an Official Withdrawal.  This paperwork is very important to keep from having a failing grade recorded on your college transcripts.


When taking a quiz or test online, be sure to look for time limits. If your quiz is timed you must finish it prior to the time limit expiring in order to receive credit for your answers.


Never use your personal email accounts for PCC related communications.   Always use either My.PittCC or Moodle to send messages to your instructors or other PCC employees.


Don't be surprised if you do not see all of your courses listed in Moodle at the beginning of the semester.  It may take a day or two for the instructors to make the courses active.


Log into your My.PittCC email and Moodle frequently.  At least once every 24 hours is recommended.


PCC supports using the latest versions of Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome for accessing courses in Moodle.   However, PCC does not currently support the use of ANY mobile browsers or devices with Moodle.  We strongly discourage students from attempting to take quizzes or tests on mobile devices.


Procrastination is your biggest enemy in an online course. Never wait until the last minute to turn in online tests or assignments.  You never know when you may have technical issues that prevent you from getting your work in on time.  Most online instructors will not accept late work!


Your instructor should ALWAYS be your first point of contact when you have a problem in your online course.
