Hampshire's course website system, Moodle, is an open source learning management system with an emphasis on communication, collaboration, and student involvement.
Hampshire and Five College students are automatically enrolled in course websites for courses in which they are registered. Instructors can temporarily add students to course websites if needed, but students should note that they still need to register for the course on TheHub.
- Instructors must make their course website available to students. Until they do, students cannot access it.
- Instructors can add students and TAs to their course website as needed, though they do still need to add/drop on TheHub as appropriate. If a student does not appear when you try to enroll them, ask them to log into the Hampshire Moodle first and try again.
