Using Moodle as a student

Course enrolment and unenrolment

After logging into Moodle (and one-off confirmation of the terms of use), you will be taken to the Dashboard.

Tip: Change the language settings from German to English using the dropdown menu on the top of the page.

To enrol on a Moodle course as a student, first search for the course. You can do this either using the Courses tab or directly via the “Kurse suchen” (German for "Search courses") search box.

  • The Courses tab is on the left-hand side. You can click through your department and search for a course.

  • The “Kurse suchen” search box is in the middle of the Dashboard, at the top. Enter the name of the course you are looking for.

Once you have found the course, click on the course name. You will need to enter an enrolment key to access the course. If you do not have one, please contact your lecturer.

Enter the enrolment key in the appropriate box and click <Enrol>.

You will then be forwarded directly to the course area.

For some courses, you may also receive an email confirming that you are now enrolled on the course.
