How to Begin Class

  • Wait until the classes are scheduled to start before you attempt to log in to your course.
  • Instructors are required to have their courses available by the second day of the drop/add period.
  • Do not call until after that date with problems concerning logging in to your course(s).
  • E-mail your instructor(s) to let them know that you have activated your BRCC WebMail Account and let them know your accounts are set up and that you are looking forward to the course(s). "TBA" on your schedule does not mean you should wait to login.
  • If you have never taken an online course in Moodle, we strongly urge you to participate in a face-to-face orientation, or read the tutorials in the Moodle Online Orientation.
