Course enrollments are automatically synchronized with your registration in Banner (the courses you see in the Portal) and updated every time you login to Moodle.

Generally, Moodle courses become unavailable to students approximately one month after the end of the semester . If you need access to a course that you took in a previous semester, contact your professor.

If you don’t see a course that you are registered for, check with your professor.

It is likely that the professor has not opened the course to students yet or may not be using Moodle.

Mobile app

Use the OpenLMS mobile app to access Moodle at Colgate on your mobile device (the standard Moodle mobile app in Google Play or the App Store will not work).

OpenLMS logo

The OpenLMS app works for many but not all of the activities in Moodle. Notably it will provide you with Mobile notifications of upcoming due dates and messages. It will not give you access to course blocks (content in the right pane of your course as seen in a regular web browser.) If your professor provides content in a block (e.g. a calendar) you will need to access Moodle using a web browser, not the app.
