Did you know that you can check out rooms in the Library for individual and group study? You can! Library spaces are first come first serve. All you need to do is come by the service desk and check out the key. Check the room calendars to make sure they aren’t blocked off for Library or College use. Note that the calendars do not show when another student has the room checked out. See the available rooms in the Library.
Moodle is Greensboro College’s community course management system. It is where all faculty, staff, and students find information, where students turn in assignments or forms, and where everyone on campus interacts with each other. It’s easy to use. You can log in to moodle at: http://moodle.greensboro.edu or click Moodle on the College’s web pages. You use the same username and password as you do for email. You also use the Moodle change password option in your Moodle profile to change your email password. For Moodle assistance, please email email@example.com.
