Where are the previous courses I’ve taken in Moodle?
While you can find a full list of your previous courses in Self-Service, all Moodle course spaces, aside from professional development courses offered through the Office of Continuing Education, are archived approximately one week into the next semester/term. At that time, the archived courses in which you are a student will no longer appears in your “My Courses” block.
- WINTER & SPRING term courses are usually archived near the beginning of June.
- MAY & SUMMER courses are usually archived near the end of August or the beginning of September.
- FALL Courses are usually archived near the middle to end of January.
When a specific date for the archiving process is determined, it is announced through the University’s email.
As a student, you can walk through an approval process for a short-term access to a previous course. If granted by the dean team and instructor, the course can be opened for a period of ~72 hours for you to download any work that you had not previously saved.
If you wish to being the approval process, please submit a Moodle Support Help Desk ticket. For each course to which you wish to request access, please include the following in the text of the request:
- Course ID (e.g., BADM 101, COUN 888, NURS 420C, etc.) and section number — this information will be in Self-Service, if you are not sure of the details
- Course Name (e.g., Intro to Business, Principles of Counseling, Pediatric Nursing, etc.
- Instructor’s Name
- If the course was taken more than more, please indicate the Academic Term & Session, if you know if (e.g., Fall 2019 TERM2, May term 2020, etc.)
Again, if you are looking for a Continuing Education course, you need to work with the office directly. A professional development course offered through the Office of Continuing Education likely has a course id of EDU or BIO (no ‘L’), though there are other ids, and contains ‘WKS’ and ‘ContED’ somewhere in the full course id, such as EDU 893S/WKS2-2019/FALL/ContED – Intro to Special Education.
