Tour the Moodle Learning Environment
Cedarville’s online courses are designed to help students engage with rich content in order to master specific learning objectives. The focus is on active student learning. Learning activities such as audio and video content, peer-to-peer interaction, self-directed assignments and group work along with professor mentoring and feedback is delivered through a web-based learning management system called Moodle.
Cedarville’s online courses are developed in the Center for Teaching and Learning to take best advantage of online learning technology and pedagogy. Courses are asynchronous, meaning that there is no set time that you will meet together with your entire class. Courses are typically divided into one-week unites, so you can accomplish weekly requirements at your own convenience as long as you keep up with the course calendar.
A three-semester-hour course will require about 8-10 hours of study time per week. Students who set aside time daily to interact with course material will experience the most success.
You will access all of your course material through Moodle (Cedarville's Learning Management System). After you log in, click on the name of the course you're taking. There you'll find all of the course components, including the syllabus, assignment instructions, assignment submission slots, discussion forums, exams, and quizzes.
On the main course page, all Moodle courses have a welcome box at the top of the page where you will find basic class information, your professor’s information, and the link to the course website.
Below the welcome box, you will see the layout of every week/unit and the assignments that you will complete for each week/unit.
To access your Moodle profile, click on My Profile in the blue menu bar at the top of the screen. You can check on your grades by clicking on Grades under Settings on the right.
