Cannot Find My Moodle Class

What to do when you can't find your Moodle class

Last Updated: May 31st, 2022

I can't find my Moodle course that I'm assigned to for this upcoming term.
The upcoming term's Moodle Shell courses are assigned to instructors around Week 7 of the previous term. There are completely hidden from a students view on Moodle, but instructors can find them through the following steps: 

  1. Log on to your Moodle account and go to your Dashboard where all your courses can be located from
  2. Scroll to the very bottom of the page, you should see a link titled Hidden Courses
  3. Click on the Hidden Courses link to see all the courses that are currently hidden from students (meaning students cannot view their Moodle course till you decide to make it visible.)

To update the settings of your course to make it visible to students, please go to this article.

I am teaching a class this term, but I can't find it in Moodle. Will you please set up my Moodle section for me?

  • It's possible this is a new section or a section that has just been reassigned to you. Moodle classes are built from ExpressLane/Banner sections, which are built and managed by the Academic Coordinators in your department. You can verify if the class has been assigned to you by logging into ExpressLane and then selecting the Faculty Tab.

    Once the page loads, select the Active Assignments. Here you will see the past and current assigned courses. If a specific course you know you will be teaching is not in this list, please contact your Department Coordinator to see why the course has not been built and/or assigned to you yet. 

If you still cannot find your course (especially after the ATC has performed an import or backup/restore for you) let us know and we will assist you.
