1. Check Your Email

Students must have an active e-mail address to take an online course AND must report this address to the Office of Admissions and Records or update their personal records at - click on the ROAR button. Every student is given a Highland email account. If you aren't sure how to get started in your online course, be sure to log into your Highland email to see if you have some communication from your instructor. See the main page of this website for more instructions about campus email.


2. Find Your Course

Most online courses at Highland use Moodle to deliver the course materials. If you are unsure how to start your course go to the Current Courses page on this website and find your course in the list.


3. Log into your Course

Go to the login page for your course. Click the orange login button above to find Moodle,  the course management system used at Highland. Your username and password for online courses will be your first initial, middle initial and last name typed together (example jqperson.) If you have problems logging in, Contact Us.


4. Get Started!

Once you successfully log into your course, you should see some directions about what to do next, and how to begin working in the course. The instructor will probably have a syllabus and some course information for you to read, and may have a discussion assignment for you to complete within the first few days of the course. Be sure to complete these things quickly, so you have time to ask questions if there is something you don't understand. Most instructors keep a fairly tight schedule in online courses and require you to show activity within the very first week of the course.
