Student Guide to Moodle

If you're new to Moodle, this guide will provide information about getting started and using many of the common tools and features used at LSUA.

To navigate through this guide, click on a chapter name in the table of contents on the right or use the arrows in the upper and lower right corner of each page. (If you don't see the table of contents on the right, you'll find it below the content of each page.)

Browser Requirements

Google Chrome logo with green checkmark

We recommend using a recent version of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox

While Safari, Edge, and Mozilla Firefox may be fine for viewing Moodle resources, we do not recommend using these browsers for submitting assignments or taking exams in Moodle.

In addition, some courses will use content from publishers like McGraw Hill, Pearson, etc. The publisher content that’s integrated in Moodle may require you to enable pop-ups in the browser and from past experiences we’ve found that Google Chrome works the best. However, it’s always a good idea to have an alternate browser for a backup like Mozilla Firefox.
