Moodle

Moodle is designed to enhance your learning experience by providing access to online course materials.

What is Moodle?

Moodle is your virtual learning environment. It allows you to:

  • Access course materials
  • Gain feedback
  • Contact tutors
  • Upload work
  • See grades
  • and much more

Moodle is very simple to use. The system is laid out as simply as possible to take the stress out of uploading new assignments and receiving feedback, with messages sent automatically to your email.

How to access Moodle

  • Go to Moodle directly.
  • Or go to www.blackburn.ac.uk and click on Staff & Students, then Moodle.
  • Once on Moodle, log in using your username and password.
  • Your login for Moodle is your student number e.g. 12345678. If you aren’t sure what your ID number is, it is printed on your Student ID card.
  • Your password is your first initial as a capital letter, then the initial of you surname in lowercase, followed by your date of birth in 8 digits 01092000. So if your name is Joe Bloggs and your date of birth is 1st September 2000 your password would be Jb0192000.
