Find your Moodle Staging Area

You will need a staging area for this process. If you do not have one, please contact the OLET department by placing a ticket at Online Learning/Moodle Support, or by emailing us at online@clackamas.edu.

Find your Staging Area: Quick Search (for Sandbox Course)

These instructions require that you have not renamed your Sandbox Course that was created for you. If these directions don’t work you can also try searching for the course Manually.

Log into Moodle.

Click on Dashboard on the red bar.

Open the block drawer.

Locate the Staff: Manual Course Access block.

Select the Manual search for Moodle courses link.

Locate the Search courses textbox.

Enter Sandbox followed by your first and last name and hit Enter/Return on your keyboard or click on the magnifying glass to search.

Once you find your sandbox look to the bottom of the course entry and click the link that will be Lastname, Firstname next to Category.

Now that you have found your staging area you can create a new Moodle course, set up an incomplete, or delete courses you are no longer using.

NOTE: If you did not find your staging area using this method you might consider finding it manually.

Find your Staging Area: Manually

These instructions will work if you have renamed your sandbox course that was created with your staging area. To use this method you need to know your division and your department.

Click on the link for your Department.

Click on the link that is your last name, first name.

If you don’t find your staging area this way you can use the drop-down at the top and look for your last name, first name.

NOTE: If you still can’t find your staging area or you would like to move your staging area to a different department please contact the OLET department by placing a ticket at Online Learning/Moodle Support, or by emailing us at online@clackamas.edu.

Now that you have found your staging area you can create a new Moodle course, set up an incomplete, or delete courses you are no longer using.
