Moodle is a web-based course management system which allows faculty to easily set up interactive online spaces for their courses without having to know how to create web pages. Faculty can upload syllabi, host discussions, accept assignments electronically, send email to their students, give quizzes, and much more. Moodle is also used by many departments, organizations and committees on campus.

Turnitin Guide for Instructors

A note on Turnitin - most faculty at Kenyon prefer using Turnitin through Moodle, since it simplifies managing multiple usernames and passwords for both faculty and students. However, it is possible to run your class directly through if you prefer. It is also possible to run only specific suspect papers through Turnitin's plagiarism detection feature instead of requiring it of the whole class. Contact Joe Murphy,, for more information.
