Quick Start Guide for instructors
Moodle is Virtual Learning Environment used by CEU (often referred to as the “e-learning site”). You can use it from any computer with internet access. It is the central place to provide all the necessary information to students about a course and to supplement offline work with online activities.
This help material contains the basics to get started.
1. After you receive your username / password from CEU IT, make sure that you log in to your MS account (CEU email) first at https://portal.office.com and set it up (change password, multi-factor authentication)
If you are logged in to the MS account, you can single sign on to Moodle:
Alternatively you can type your Microsoft Username (the beginning of the email address - for Kovacsg@ceu.edu, the username is kovacsg) and Passwordto the box and click on the Login button.
You CANNOT change your password on the e-learning site directly, but if you change your Microsoft password it will change your e-learning password as well. If you have any problems accessing the site or having password issues, please contact the IT Helpdesk.
You can find your profile at the top right (empty profile icon), then click on "edit profile". You can add some details you would like to share about yourself at the description field and drag and drop a profile picture if you wish (it will be resized, so a 100*100pixel picture is the best).
Right after logging in you may find your enrolled courses in the “My courses” / My home menu at the top navigation panel or at the “My enrolled courses” block on your Dashboard.
If you cannot find a course, check that you are not hiding it with filtering for a specific year or folder - if you still have problems, please contact your departmental coordinator.
Basic course editing
After you log in and visit your course, always start with TURN EDITING ON (top right corner). Use the appearing icons and menus to add, change, move, edit content.
