Moodle Help

This guide is designed to assist Earlham faculty with Moodle questions. Moodle 3.8 is Earlham's learning management system that assists with teaching and learning.

Teachers can add another teacher or TA to your course to assist in editing, grading, or performing other duties. Teachers can also add someone as a Guest, which grants limited access to a course to view content.

  2. Click Enrol Users. Search for the user by name.
  3. Use the drop-down menu to select the correct role: (Teacher Non-Evaluated, TA, Guest, etc.) NOTE: Faculty cannot add Students. Speak with the Registrar's office if a student is missing from your roster. Auditing students should be added through the Registrar's office. 
  4. Click Enrol Selected Users and Cohorts.

Remove TA or Co-teacher

Student Access to Past Courses

Student access to courses ends after each semester
In order to comply with copyright law, student access to Moodle course sites will end a few weeks after the completed semester's grades are due. Students are welcome to download copies of any materials they would like to keep before that date.  Faculty should contact  for assistance if they have a student who has an extension and requires temporary access to complete coursework.
