In this course, author Chris Mattia explores Moodle's rich learning environment and helps students successfully navigate a typical Moodle course. Serving as a reference guide, the course provides instruction on key Moodle functions, such as posting materials to student's blog, participating in live chats with other students, completing assignments online, accessing grades and instructor feedback, and more.
Unless your campus's Moodle server is tied into a single sign-on system where you use one username and password for your entire campus, it's very likely that the very first thing you are going to want to do once you login successfully into Moodle is to go in and change your password, because your password is probably something that was set up and just given to you that's not very secure. So let's go ahead and personalize our password so it's something that's easy for us to remember and is a little bit more secure and not the default settings. So to reset your password, once you've logged in to Moodle over on the left-hand side you have a block called Navigation and inside of that block you should find a listing somewhere for My profile.
So I'll go ahead and click on My profile and there is a lot of different options that you have in here, but we want the one that says View profile. Go ahead and click on View profile and that'll take you into your personal profile page on Moodle that describes a lot of information about you, basic things that have already been added as part of the default creation of your account. And in the left-hand side you have another Settings block and right there is the Change password link. So go ahead and hit Change password. Now it's going to ask you to type in your current password. My current password is set to 12345, and for a new password I am going to add something that's easy to remember for this training but something that's a little more secure.
So I am going to change the password to 123456. I know, it's a really secure password but there you are. So we'll go ahead and retype that password here for new password again. I will just type that in, 123456, making sure that I don't make any mistakes and I will click the Save changes button. Now my password has been changed and I'm no longer set to the default password. In the next movie I'll show you how to go ahead and customize your profile.
