      Moodle is the online course/learning management system used at Aurora University.  All online only classes have a Moodle website.  Most face to face courses also use Moodle.  Most course Moodle websites include a syllabus, which has a list of required textbooks.

      For an on-campus class use the Moodle: AU On Campus link at the bottom of the AU homepage.

      For an online only class, use the Moodle: AU Online link at the bottom of the AU homepage.
