To do this, follow the steps below.

  4. Look for the “Enrollment key” section. In the image below this section is labelled “Orientation – Fall 2017.”
  5. Then click on the text to the right of the “Enrollment key” which reads, “Click to enter text.”
  6. Type in the enrollment key you were given. If you click the magnifying glass, you can see the characters you are typing.

  8. Finally click the “Enroll me” button.
  9. You will be brought to the homepage for the course. Now, when you login to Moodle, you will see this course listed in your “My Courses” block/list.

If there are a number of announcements on the Moodle homepage and you cannot locate scroll down to locate the “Search courses” box, you can also click on the “Find a course” link in the “Main Menu” block.
