Modifying Course Start Date and Other Course Details


The course start date in Moodle automatically populates from our Student Information System, Colleague, but the date will not automatically update once the course is created in Moodle. Sometimes the dates become misaligned and can cause confusion. Faculty can modify the course start date as well as the Course Full and Short names in their Moodle course by following the instructions provided in this article.

Steps To Modify Start Date & Course Full & Short Name

  1. Navigate to your Moodle course.
  2. Locate and click the gear icon in the top right-hand side of your course, select Edit settings.
