  • To help Moodle users better find and organize their courses, a tab system has been created on the "My Courses" page. This page contains course cards linked to all courses in which a user is currently enrolled and can access. You may find the following:
    • The Courses tab contains your visible campus Moodle courses. If you are not enrolled in any visible campus courses and are enrolled in an LSUOnline coures you will see your LSUOnline courses. Instructors can also access their Hidden courses at the bottom of this tab.

    • The Archives tab links to courses an instructor taught prior to 2023 First Summer on the LSU Online Moodle site. (See LSU Online Moodle to Campus Moodle Integration 2023 for more information)

    • The Masters tab contains all of an instructor's Master courses. (See Moodle: Blocks: CPS: Request a Master Course to learn how to request a Master Course)

    • The HRM tab contains all HRM training courses and will be visible to all users.

    • The LSUOnline tab contains LSU Online courses taught going forward starting with 2023 First Summer for those also currently enrolled in a visible campus Moodle course.

    • A tab will not be visible if there are no courses to display. If you are not currently enrolled in a campus course, then the LSU Online courses will appear in the Courses tab.
