Student Online Orientation Letter
You have registered for an internet-enhanced or web-based course at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. Your instructor uses our learning management system – Moodle – to deliver content such as the grade book, online homework, and/or testing online. Successful completion of the online orientation is required before you can access your courses in Moodle. You are required to complete the online orientation only one time.
This orientation is designed to help you become familiar with the features of Moodle. The videos and text-based materials are designed to help you learn to use Moodle tools and to navigate through a course. You are expected to have basic Internet and email skills before beginning the orientation.
To access the online orientation:
- Log in to My Valley
- Click the link located in the text above your classes: Looks like you haven't yet taken our Moodle Orientation. You must complete the orientation quiz to access your courses' Moodle contents (after a certain grace period). Don't wait, take the orientation and quiz now!
- Once you are on the online orientation page, read the instructions on how to complete the orientation.
- After viewing the videos, reading the materials, and any practices… click the “Check your knowledge (Orientation quiz).
- You must receive an 80% on the quiz in order to access your Moodle course. You are allowed to take the assessment as many times as needed to achieve 80%. After passing with an 80% it will take approximately 10 minutes to record your results and allow you access to Moodle.
If you have difficulties accessing the orientation, please contact the student computer lab at 488-4250 (Texas Township campus) or 373-7814 (Anna Whitten Hall).
