Yes, there is.
You can use just about any kind of computer to access UOG Moodle.
Although UOG Moodle is compatible with mobile devices, we strongly recommend that you use a Desktop or Laptop to take online quizzes.
If you don't have your own computer or mobile device, you still have a couple of options for accessing UOG Moodle.
Please remember to log off whenever you use a shared computer. If you do not log off, the next person using that computer can use your account and cause all kinds of problems for you.
The following is a list of commonly needed software/apps that you should have installed on your computer or mobile device. Some of these are available to you as a UOG student. Some of these are free downloads from the Internet. You can use alternatives to these if you have a preference.
(Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook)
There may be some courses that will require you to use additional systems or software. Your instructors will let you know what is needed and will provide you with instructions or access to these systems or software.
To brush up on any of these, you should visit The Student Corner and scroll down to the "Resources" section. You will find free training to help you.
You will need broadband Internet connection to access and use UOG Moodle. Many home Internet connections are broadband nowadays. If you don't have Internet connection at home here are some options for you:
The numbers in red below, match the following items:
The Timeline View shows you any courses or activities with start dates or due dates coming up.
The Courses View shows you any courses that you have access to. If the course is set to track completion, you will see a progress graph like the ones shown here. The orange portion shows the percentage of the course already completed. Click on the course name to access it.
There are tabs available to help you find your In Progress courses, your Future courses, or your Past courses.
UOG’s installation of Moodle currently supports the Moodle app. If you install it on your phone, you will be able to connect to Moodle.
The mobile app is available for free from Google Play and the Apple Store. You can install the app directly from your mobile device by searching for 'Moodle Mobile' with author/owner 'Moodle Pty Ltd'.
Mozilla Firefox is the most compatible with our UOG Moodle. Internet and Safari will also work as long as you keep them up-to-date. Google Chrome may work for most things in Moodle, but is not recommended.
If you have logged into Moodle before the first day of classes, you may not see your course. Courses are open to students the first day of classes each term. See the UOG Course Schedule for specific dates.
In addition, instructors need to “turn on” their courses in order to make them visible to their students. If you are still not seeing your class when you log into Moodle on or after the first day of class, it’s possible your instructor has not yet made the course visible. Email your instructor first, and if you are still unable to see your course email us at email@example.com
Moodle is accessible from most pages on the UOG website, including the homepage. At the top right of the page, click “Login” button and select “Moodle.” Follow the instructions for logging into Moodle.
You will need to use your Moodle username and password.
