Online learning has become a major force in higher education. It affords motivated students the opportunity to study at their own pace and in a manner that suits their demanding schedules. Chicago State University and the CTRE are committed to bringing this flexible, powerful means of learning to all students.
Online classes need to operate through a learning management system (LMS). Just as at institions like MIT, Ohio State University, and Texas A&M, Chicago State University uses Moodle. Moodle allows students to download reading materials and assignments, watch class videos, post to discussion boards, take quizzes, and much more--all online.
At CSU, Moodle is managed by the CTRE. The department ensures that it runs smoothly, and assists users - both students and faculty - with troubleshooting. If you need assistance using or understanding Moodle, schedule an appointment (below) and one of our technicians will be happy to help.
The CTRE is here to help the CSU community navigate and use Moodle. If you would like to sit down with a member of our team for a help session, you can schedule an appointment using Schedulicity by clicking the button below.
