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.
Consortium and Collaboration
The other colleges in the Five College Consortium also use Moodle for course websites and each school maintains its own installation of Moodle:
- Moodle at Amherst College
- Moodle at Mt Holyoke College
- Moodle at Smith College
- Moodle at the University of Massachusetts
Hampshire is an active member of the Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project (CLAMP), which is a consortium of liberal arts institutions that collaborates on Moodle development and support.
