Moodle is the name of Cambrian College’s Learning Management System (LMS). It is an online learning platform where faculty can set up and deliver courses or training programs. Students use Moodle to view course materials, receive important information from their instructors, participate in discussions, complete assessments, view their grades, and much more.
Cambrian uses Moodle for all course deliveries (face-to-face, online, HyFlex, etc.). We are currently using Moodle version 3.11.
Moodle LMS Minimum Presence Requirements
In 2019, the Cambrian College LMS Working Group and Academic Advisory Council developed and approved minimum presence requirements for the use of Moodle in all courses. Click the link below to ensure your courses contain all required elements.
We’ve created a series of videos to help you become familiar with Moodle and learn more about specific features.
You are also welcome to reach out to the Hub team to get started. We can answer any Moodle questions you have and can assist you with setting up your course.
Additionally, there are resources for Learning Moodle 3.11 from LinkedIn Learning. All Cambrian faculty and staff can access LinkedIn Learning. Log in using your Cambrian Microsoft Office credentials.

Moodle Announcements are one-way communication sent by faculty to students. Announcements are different than discussion forums, which can be used to foster two-way communication between faculty and students. This video demonstrates how to send an Announcement in Moodle and explains some advanced options.
When faculty create an Announcement, it is emailed to all students. The Announcements link is also visible at the top of your course page.
Do you have a student who requires additional time on a test, needs to write it on a different date/time than other students, or has been allowed another attempt? In this video, we explain how you can create a User Override in Moodle to allow for accommodations such as this.
