Resources for Graduate Instructors

Moodle Resources

A Moodle site will be created for each of your courses and rosters will be created and updated using the information in the Registrar's system. A site will usually be available soon after online undergraduate registration for the new term is closed, e.g. Summer and Fall 2018 course sites will be created by April 24, 2018. Logging into Moodle requires an active MHC email account. Here's more information about logging into Mount Holyoke's Moodle site

If you have never used Mount Holyoke's Moodle, you may need to login to Moodle once to set up your account. If you don't see your course site the first time you log in, log out of Moodle and log in again. If that doesn't work, please contact Mary Glackin. 

You will be using the Moodle Gradebook to give feedback to your students and to organize your grades for submission to the Registrar via my.mtholyoke.edu. You can set up your grade book based on the grading information in your syllabus. Grades recorded in Moodle Gradebook will be available to your students only when you release/publish them. 

More information about setting up a Moodle Gradebook is available from Lafayette C. and from U. Minnesota. If you have specific questions about your gradebook, please contact Mary Glackin. 

We are currently running v 3.1. Each page in a Moodle site has a link at the bottom of the page to the most appropriate section of the official documentation for that specific Moodle function. A Google search for your question is likely to yield additional helpful documents and YouTube explanations for most Moodle functions. 

If you have any questions about Moodle, please contact your program director or Mary Glackin.

 

Video Conferencing

Mount Holyoke uses Zoom web conferencing for video conferences and online class meetings. Please create a Zoom account using your MHC email address. This account will allow you to host meetings that last up to 40 minutes. Once you have created a Zoom account, you can test it and your internet connection by going to this Zoom Test Room.

A professional Zoom account,  allowing longer meetings and needed for most classes, can be assigned to you once you have a personal account with your MHC email. 

Zoom.us has excellent documentation on using their webinar system. 

Access to my.mtholyoke.edu

my.mtholyoke.edu is the portal to the college Student Information System and other college resources. You will log in with your Mount Holyoke username and password, once your credentials are set.  You should be able to access your class roster and other privileged information about your course through this portal. Grades are submitted to the Registrar's office on this site. If you encounter problems accessing your course information, please contact the Registrar's Office or your PaGE program director.
