What is my KVCC user name and/or password?

Your KVCC user name is your first initial, last name, and last 4 digits of your Valley ID number. For example, John Smith's Valley ID Number is V0011234. John's user name would be jsmith1234. Your default password should be your 6-digit birth date (MMDDYY). You may change it once you've logged in to MyValley. If you forget your password, you can go to any KVCC computer lab and have it reset to the default password.

How do I access my online assignments?

How you access your online assignments depends on which of the 4 available methods your instructor(s) decided to use. Instructions for each of the possibilities are below.

All of the steps start the same regardless of the method:
Login to MyValley (for help with logging in, please see above). Follow the specific instructions for the desired method below:

Moodle
Click the Moodle Icon in the My Classes section of MyValley. If you want to go directly to the Moodle server, you can browse to https://p1.kvcc.edu/moodle2/my/ (If this is your first time accessing Moodle, you may be asked to complete an online orientation before being allowed to proceed.) Click on the link for the appropriate course.

MyValley - My Classes

In the "My Classes" section, under the "Courses I'm Attending:" section, click on the course title for the course you want to retrieve assignments from.
