Moodle Help for Faculty

Missouri Western is migrating our online Learning Management System(LMS) from WebCT to Moodle. Please use the following links for assistance when building/converting a course for use in Moodle.

We will continue to add video and written instructions for all functions in Moodle, therefore this list will continue to grow. However, if there is a topic that is missing from this list that you want to see added contact: Jake Kelly at 271-5874.
