What is Moodle

Moodle is a learning platform designed to provide educators, administrators and learners with a single robust, secure and integrated system to create personalised learning environments.
Moodle is built by the Moodle project which is led and coordinated by Moodle HQ, an Australian company of 30 developers which is financially supported by a network of over 60 Moodle Partner service companies worldwide.
Detailed information about Moodle can be found here.

In order to register an account at the VLE website please follow the following link: http://translatoryka.uni.lodz.pl/moodle/login/signup.php .

STEP 2 – Create an account

 

You will see the signup form (presented below).

Provide your username and password.

IMPORTANT!

In More Details section provide your e-mail (it should be your working e-mail as it will be used to verify your account and retrieve your password, if forgotten).
Enter the CAPTCHA words (security check) and hit Create my new account.

 

STEP 3 – Verify the account

You will receive an e-mail (the service is almost instantaneous so if you don’t have the e-mail on your e-mail in 5 minutes, check the SPAM folder) with the following content:
