Your Dashboard


Your dashboard will come up automatically after you log into Moodle. It will show you the timeline of events coming up (black squirrel doesn’t currently have any assignments coming up!), further down, it will also have your calendar of events! Where you can see all of your upcoming assignments for the month, which you can filter by class specifically, or see all of your upcoming work! 

Clicking on an individual activity on your calendar will give you more information and can even take you directly to it! 

My Courses

To easily navigate between courses, go to the my courses tab at the top of the moodle window. Once you see your courses, you can filter them to get to the courses that you need!

  • All – All courses taken that academic year 
  • In Progress – Any course currently in progress that semester
  • Future – All upcoming courses that have been made visible, but have not started yet
  • Past – Courses that are still visible, but from a previous semester
  • Starred – Courses that you have starred 

It is recommended that you star your courses and filter that way for easy access, in the event that you need your courses after their end date.
