Beloit College uses the Google G Suite for email, calendaring, productivity, and collaboration. To login to G Suite, simply use the same username and password you use for other Beloit College networked resources, such as; the Portal, Moodle, and printing.
Faculty, staff, and student account creations are triggered automatically through the hiring or process. Alumni G Suite accounts are not automatically created, but are available upon request through the Alumni Affairs Office.
Moodle (an acronym for modular object-oriented dynamic learning environment) is the open-source online learning management system (LMS) used by Beloit College. Moodle can be used for posting syllabi, course readings, class forums, assessments, grading, creating online activities for students, and much more.
Beloit College maintains several separate instances of Moodle:
- Moodle - for all current academic year courses
- Moodle Groups - for all non-academic courses (committees, reading groups, etc.)
- Moodle Archive - for past courses (only accessible on campus)
Please visit the Moodle Help course for tutorials and other information about working in and with Moodle. The Moodle Help course contains instructional guides for both instructors and students with information to help you get started using Moodle.
