I See a Moodle Icon in KUSSS but Can Not Find the Corresponding Moodle Course?

Course instructors have the option to hide courses from students. This means that on one hand, the course is probably still being prepared before being accessible online, or the course is no longer available.

If you have questions about the availability of your course, please contact the course instructor.

What Should I Do If a Course is Incorrectly Listed in the Course Overview?

According to the course start and finish dates as stated in the Moodle course settings, the course will be listed under “In progress”, “Future” or “Past”. If the classification is incorrect, please contact the course instructor or the corresponding institute.

How Do I Find Courses in Moodle?

KUSSS automatically allocates enrollment in a course's Moodle course. In KUSSS, next to the course in the "Extras" column, click on the Moodle icon to go directly to the Moodle course. After successful login, you can access the corresponding Moodle course in Moodle. The prerequisite is that the Moodle course be released for students by the instructor.
If it is a Moodle course without a corresponding course in KUSSS, search for the Moodle course title under "search courses" and "quick links". You will see a list of available courses and you can make your selection.
