Moodle is the world's most popular learning management system – available in over 100 languages and used in every country in the world.  Furman's Moodle is hosted by eThink, providing full service support for latest versions, and backup services.



Access Moodle from My Furman (my.furman.edu) and choose the Moodle Quick Link icon 

Current courses are viewed from the Dashboard - Course Overview.  Use the filter options to sort All, In Progress, Past, Starred and Hidden courses.  Current Courses are also listed in the My Courses tab in the top horizontal navigation and a comprehensive list can be found in Profile - Course Details.

For Students

  • Changes to course enrollment will be reflected in Moodle the day after the change is made with the Registrar.  If you do not have access to a course within 24 hours of the change, you may contact your professor. 

For Faculty 

  • Fall, Spring and MayX courses are created two months prior to beginning of term (for all courses listed in Colleague/ERP). 
    If you do not see your course in Moodle, check Colleague/ERP. If it is not listed in Colleague/ERP, contact the Registrar's office before contacting the Service Center.  

  • Fall, Spring and MayX courses are populated 5 days before the start of term and updated daily through Drop/Add.  Changes to enrollment will be reflected in Moodle the day after the change is made by Registrar.
    • Summer Session course rosters are populated along with MayX courses and updated for 2 weeks.

  • If a student reports they do not have access to your course:
    • Check Colleague/ERP roster. Students are enrolled in Moodle the day after the change is made in the Registrar's office (the change must be made in Colleague first).
    • If you see the student listed in Colleague/ERP but not Moodle, contact service.center@furman.edu with course number and student name.

Note:  The check course and roster listing, go to my.furman.edu
