Logging successfully into Donald High School's Intranet (Moodle)

by Mr Potter -

Moodle stands for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment. Donald High School uses the Moodle system as their Intranet (a closed part of the Internet) for students, teachers and parents.

When you use the Intranet for the first time you will need to login by clicking the login link in the top right hand corner of the page.

If you are logging in for the first time, you will need to type as your username your Christian name and surname (no spaces and all lower case). Your password will for the first time be "changeme". When you login successfully, you will be directed to change your password to something new and unique. Once this is done do not disclose your Intranet password to anyone else. If you do tell other people this may cause problems for you.

If you lose your password, tell Mr. Potter who will reset your password to "changeme". You then log in with your username and the "changeme" password. As you go through the step of logging in, you will be asked to reset your password. Reset your password to one of your choice, and write it down somewhere so that you do not forget it.

When you log in you will see a number of things including a box to the lower left that lists the courses you are enrolled in. Click on the course of your choice to see what it is all about.

If there are any problems please see Mr. Potter or your course (subject) teacher.
