Moodle

Moodle is the name of Cambrian College’s Learning Management System (LMS).

It is an internal software application that helps our faculty to administer, document, track, report on and deliver courses or training programs. Students use Moodle to view the courses they are registered in, receive important information from their instructors, access and complete activities, participate in discussions, complete assessments, view their grades, and much more.

In addition to using Moodle for face-to-face courses, Cambrian also uses Moodle to deliver online courses as well as HyFlex courses. We are currently using Moodle 3.9 version.

You can access Moodle at moodle.cambriancollege.ca with your Cambrian credentials.

Moodle LMS Minimum Presence Requirements

In early 2019, the Cambrian College Learning Management System (LMS) Working Group and the Academic Advisory Council developed and approved minimum presence requirements for use of Moodle in all face-to-face courses.

Learning Moodle

Moodle, like other software, can take some time to learn in the beginning. To help in your learning, we’ve created a series of videos so you can become familiar with the course layouts and features of Moodle.

You are also welcome to reach out to the Hub team to get started. We can answer any questions you have and assist you in setting up your course and administering the features of Moodle.

There are also great resources to learn Moodle such as Learning Moodle 3.9 from LinkedIn Learning. All faculty and staff at Cambrian College can access LinkedIn Learning. Log in using your Cambrian credentials or contact IT Help Desk if you require assistance.

When you create an announcement, it will be emailed to all students in your course who are subscribed to receive automatic email notifications. Your announcement will also be visible at the top of your course page when students click on the Announcements link, as well as in the Latest Announcements section on the right of your course page.
