O NLINE LEARNING WITH MOODLE:
O RIENTATION FOR STUDENTS
W HAT IS MOODLE ROOMS/ JOULE ?
Welcome to joule™ Orientation! So, what is joule anyway? Most colleges within the Louisiana Community and Technical College System have contracted with a company called Moodlerooms to provide a customized Moodle platform through which to deliver online or web-enhanced courses. Moodlerooms’ version of Moodle is named joule™ and the company has intentionally NOT capitalized the name of the product. Throughout this document, Moodle will be referred to as joule. This orientation will provide the information you need to get started in your joule course(s). Since you will access your course through your college’s website, take moment to become familiar with it: http://www.sowela.edu . The resources you find there will help you get started, and will also be of assistance to you throughout your course(s). Look for links and information on the following:

joule login link
Helpdesk link
Student email login link
Important semester dates (academic calendar)
Library resources
Bookmark the links. These resources will be essential for your success as an online student.
Remember: Unless your instructor specifically tells you otherwise, online courses begin on the first day of the semester.
Note: This orientation does not replace other mandatory class orientations that your instructor may use. Please check with your instructor or advisor regarding other required course orientations.
