Thomas Edison State University made the strategic decision to transition to a new learning management system (LMS) to provide greater flexibility and efficiency for the development, design and delivery of new courses and to better position the institution to leverage the latest technologies in education to deliver courses to our students in a richer, more meaningful way.


Moodle, which stands for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment, is an open source learning management system (LMS) that provides educators with the latest tools to manage learning and provides students with a richer, more flexible experience. Some institutions use Moodle to support fully online courses while others use it to supplement traditional brick-and-mortal classroom experiences.


We believe the navigation of the Moodle course is improved in the new course space and students will have less clicks to find their course elements and complete their course work.

Another helpful feature is the addition of Google Apps, a suite of programs that use cloud-based technology, which enable students to create spreadsheets, documents, PowerPoint presentations, access multimedia presentations and other programs required for their courses. Using Google Apps and Google Docs, students can access and submit their assignment regardless of the computer, tablet or other device they are using or the software installed on that device. Students will automatically gain access to a University-sponsored Google account when they register for a course.


Exactly. Once students access myEdison®, they can log in to their Google account to access Google Apps along with all the necessary programs required for the course.


A single sign-on means students will sign in once, using one user ID and password, to access the new portal, their Moodle courses, Online Student Services and other student resources.


Students access their courses through the new myEdison® student portal.


No. The format of examinations and the method of completing them remain the same. If a course offers an online proctored exam, students can register with ProctorU and schedule a test date. On the day of the exam, students will log into the ProctorU site for the user authentication process and then be guided to their course space by the ProctorU proctor. If students choose the take the test in the paper format, they will simply submit a Proctor Request Form at the beginning of the semester. Students should check each of their course spaces early in the semester to identify the number and format of examination(s).
