Moodle Tools for Faculty Advisors

Academic Advising

As part of our synchronization between Moodle and Banner, we create a “Faculty Advisor” Moodle course for every faculty member with advisees, and we automatically add advisees to that course when students are assigned to a particular advisor. Faculty members can find a link to their particular Faculty Advisor course by logging in to Moodle and clicking on the “Advising” section within the Current Course List to expand that section:

Advisor Course Link

There are several ways that faculty members can use that “Faculty Advisor” course:

  1. You can use the Quickmail block to send an email message to all of your advisees. If you don’t see the Quickmail block in your Faculty Advisor course, you can add the Quickmail block to your course first.
  2. You can make your course visible to students, and you can add content to the course relevant to all of your advisees.
  3. You can make your course visible to students, and you can add a Scheduler to the course to allow students to sign up for advising appointments.

Please contact our Digital Pedagogy and Scholarship (DP&S) Group if you have any questions about using Moodle for advising.
