Accounts are created once all course enrollment paperwork is processed through the Registrar’s Office. Once registered, a myRedlands login account is created. When the account is created, the information is sent to your personal email address. This includes 2 emails sent from myRedlands_Login@redlands.edu.
Locate the original email from the University of Redlands. It would have been emailed to you after you first registered. This information would have been sent to the email address you provided when you registered.
If you do not have this email, contact: ResNet@redlands.edu
In our current computing environment, where many of the services we access are Web-based, you may find it useful to have more than one Web browser installed on your computer.
If you are a PC user, we recommended Chrome and Firefox.
If you are a Mac user, we recommended Chrome and Safari.
With Moodle, we cannot guarantee that all course features will function in any other browser than what is listed.
General browser settings needed for Moodle:
Internet Explorer comes standard on a PC, while Safari comes standard on a Mac. For Firefox, visit the appropriate download link below to initiate the install:
Once logged into Moodle, course links are found on the Home page. Click the link for the course that you want to access. The links appear in the center of the page.
The syllabus is typically found near the top section of the course. Many times it is close to the News forum link. It is usually in the form of a Microsoft Word document or .pdf file. Questions regarding the syllabus should be directed to your instructor.
The row of links that appear below the logo allow you move back up a level or you can click on the My home link to move back to the page where your course(s) link is listed. When in a course, the course content will be found in the middle of the page.
Your instructor may post assignment links that require you to submit work through Moodle. Assignments may require that you upload a file or type text into a field. Be sure to read all directions and be aware of any submission deadlines. Click the Save Changes button to submit your work.
If you are subscribed to a forum, you will be notified by email of every subsequent post to that forum. These emails allow you to stay informed when new posts are added. Depending on the number of responses to the forum, this could quickly fill up your mailbox. Fortunately, people can usually decide whether or not to be subscribed to a forum, unless the instructor chooses to force the subscription (see item below for how to unsubscribe from a forum).
Please know that emails are an essential part of the way Moodle works. They are used to keep you up to date with what is going on in your course. Choose carefully which forums you unsubscribe from.
To unsubscribe from a forum:
To unsubscribe from all of the forums, click the link in the upper-right of the page that says: Unsubscribe From All Forums.
To send a message to your instructor or classmates:
Moodle's Chat activity enables instructors to have text-based conversations with students online, in real-time.
Your instructor will notify you of the day and time of the Chat activity.
All of the chat participants will be identified by their profile picture and name, along with the text they send.
To leave the chat activity, click the X in the top right corner of the chat box.
If your instructor is using Moodle's Grade function, you will be able to check your assignment grades online.
