How to Request

Course Site

Generally, there is no need to request a course site, which are pre-created for each instructor, but hidden from students.

Fill out a Moodle Request Form if you do not see your course site on moodle.yorku.ca.

Students’ Access to Course Site

There is no need to request access for students as they will have access to your course site automatically if they are officially enrolled in your course.

If you are aware that a student cannot access your course site, first check that you have made your course visible to students; then advise the students to speak with the respective student services office for the course to confirm the student’s enrolment status.

Exception for Cross-listed Courses & Students’ Access

If you are teaching a cross-listed course, please send a request to help@osgoode.yorku.ca with the following information to ensure students from both courses will have access to your course site:

  • For both courses:
    • Course Title
    • Course Code & Number
    • Course Term

Any missing information may delay the processing of your request.

Guest or Special Access to Course Site

Fill out a Moodle Request Form to request guest or special access to your course site.
