Moodle provides students with a rich environment of information, resources, and activities to enhance what is being taught in the classroom. In Moodle Essential Training for Students, Chris Mattia walks step by step through a typical Moodle course and shows students how to be successful. Chris shows how to post materials to a custom database, participate in a live chat with other students, and even access and complete assignments online.
The first thing that you want to do when you login to Moodle for the first time is change your password. Your password is usually set for you by your institution and often times is created using some kind of a formula that's shared by all users at your institution. You can change your password by simply going up to the upper right-hand corner of your screen to where you see 'You are logged in as' and your name. Go ahead and click on your name, I'll click on Elvis McNamera. Then at the bottom of the window click on the button for Change Password.
You then need to type in your current password. My current password is set to 12345. I'll set a new password of 123456, then I'll have to type in my new password again, 123456. And click the Save changes button. You can then see that your password has been changed successfully. Go ahead and click the Continue button and let's check and make sure that this password worked. We'll go back to the main site. I'll go back by clicking on lyndaU in the upper left-hand corner.
Then I'll click on Logout. The link changes back to Login, so I'll click on that. I'll type in my User Name again, which is elvis, and I'll type in my new password, 123456. I'll click the Login button and now I can see that my password has been successfully changed to a new more secure password.
