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:

From your list of courses, click the "+Moodle" button to link a course to Moodle. Once your course has been successfully linked to Moodle, the button turns green and a checkmark appears. (The "+Google Group" button creates a Google Group of people enrolled in your course.)
