Click here to enter Moodle 2.

Moodle is a course management system/e-learning program used by HCC for the majority of online and hybrid classes and as a web-enhancement for some face-to-face courses.

To log in to Moodle, use your active directory username and password. Students, your active directory username is just the first part of your HCC email address before “”; your active directory password is initially set as your HCC ID#. For login issues, please contact our IT department. You can reach them at or at 240-500-2891.

Not all instructors or courses will use Moodle. Instructors will tell students if they have a Moodle course site. Accounts are only created for users who have at least one course using Moodle. Updates to Moodle enrollment are typically processed 1 business day after the student registration activity.

You will only be able to access course sites that have been activated by the instructor, typically by the first day of the semester. If you log in before any of your specific course sites are made available, you will see the course catalog of all "Available Courses" instead of just your individual "My Courses" listing.

Firefox is the preferred browser for use with Moodle. Follow these links for browser recommendations and for mobile device recommendations.
