Moodle Tutorials: Linking Your Course to Moodle

Linking Your Course to Moodle

If you log into Moodle before the semester starts and do not see the course you are teaching listed on your Dashboard, it is possible that your course has not been initiated or linked to Moodle.  Courses within the Pacific University Moodle system are created when the instructor initiates creation (or links the course site to Moodle). Generally, you only have to initiate once per course via Moodle Controls in

1. To initiate/link your course site, go to Once logged in, click on the Controls menu and then select the Moodle link on the top menu:

On the Moodle Controls page you will see a Self-Service tab (it is the middle one for faculty). Once you are in the Self-Service area, scroll to the bottom until you see the Unlinked Courses list, 1. enter Course # in the search box, 2. select your section, and 3. click "Link" button on the bottom:

NOTE: It will take up to 30 minutes for the course to show up in your Dashboard in Moodle.
