A:
Moodle is a learning management system that the IIRP uses to distribute course materials and expand the learning environment beyond the classroom through the use of tools like discussion forums.

A:
Moodle requires a computer with an internet connection that uses of one of the following web browsers:

  • Firefox 3 or later
  • Safari 3 or later
  • Google Chrome 4 or later
  • Opera 9 or later
  • MS Internet Explorer 7 or later

Using these browsers will minimize issues in Moodle.
(It has been noted on the Moodle website that Firefox tends to work best with Moodle. Firefox can be downloaded at http://www.mozilla.org/)

Q: What is my user name for Moodle?

Q: What is my password for Moodle?
A

Q: Where can I get my password for Moodle? I forgot it.
A:

Q: What do I need to view files that end with .pdf?
A:
Download Adobe Reader from Adobe at http://get.adobe.com/reader/.

Q: Why did my post for a forum disappear when I went to submit it?
A:
Most likely you took more than half an hour to write up your post. Moodle logs you off thinking you've gone out to lunch or are taking a nap if nothing is saved or posted within half an hour. The best bet is to type responses in a text or Word document and then copy and paste it into Moodle.

If you are writing a post that may take longer than 30 minutes to write, we suggest that you work in a word processor first and then copy and paste the text into the assignment or forum edit box.

Q: What if I don't see my course in Moodle?
A
: If it is earlier than 4 weeks before the start of the course, you will not have access to that course through Moodle. If that is not the case, please contact Student Services at (610) 807-9221 or getstarted@iirp.edu for support.
