Moodle


Northwestern State University uses Moodle as its learning management system.  This platform is designed to provide educators, administrators and learners with a secure and integrated system to deliver online courses.  On this page, you will find tutorials to help you navigate through the different functions Moodle has to offer.  Live presentations are also available to assist educators with course formatting, quizzes, and gradebook settings.  These presentations currently include Moodle Basics, Creating Quizzes in Moodle, Managing Your Gradebook, Moodle to the Max and Troubleshooting.  We routinely offer these sessions through WebEx.  Please see the ECE Professional Development Schedule for current offerings.

For more questions about Moodle, please email ece@nsula.edu.
