Moodle student guides


Moodle logo


Moodle is Warwick's virtual learning environment, where your tutor can share digital resources and activities to enhance your studies.

Each module has its own course page in Moodle where you can access relevant content.
You may also be enrolled in supplementary non-credit bearing courses, for example to help with skills development.

Please note Moodle uses the word 'course' to refer to each module page. This is not to be confused with your degree course e.g. Computer Science (BSc).


This collection of Moodle guides has been carefully curated with the Warwick student community in mind. We hope you find it helpful.

Why aren't my modules available in the dashboard?

Modules are usually missing from the Moodle dashboard for one of the following reasons:

  • Your department is still processing your module registration. The module will automatically appear in your Moodle dashboard within 24 hours of your module registration being completed in the student records database by your academic department.
  • The Moodle space has been hidden from students. Your tutor may be waiting for the module to start before they make the Moodle space available to students. They should make the Moodle space available for the start of the module.

If you have any concerns about your modules not being available in the Moodle dashboard, please contact your academic department directly. The Helpdesk are unable to support with this.
