Online Course Access

The Online Learning program is designed to be usable by any student with Internet access and a computer capable of running current web browsers. Online Learning courses use Moodle as a Course Management System. There are two ways to access your Moodle course—via MyU portal or via the Moodle server.

Note: You may not be able to access the course until your instructor turns on the course site.

MyU Portal
