As a parent or guardian, you can log into Moodle to see reports for your children, check timetables, and see aspects of the course work (assignments and resources) your children are working on. Our reporting system is continuous, so you are strongly encouraged to log into Moodle on a regular basis to follow the progress of your children.

Parents and Guardians receive their Moodle log in details when their children first commence at Flinders. This is sent by email. Your user ID will be your email address. If you did not receive a password, have lost your welcome email, or have forgotten your password, you can reset the password yourself. 

This article provides instructions for logging into Moodle.

Step-by-step guide

To log into Moodle, follow these steps:

  1. Using a web browser, visit: 

  2. Enter your Username (email address) into the first space.
  3. Enter your password in the second space.

  4. Click Log in


Bookmark the log in page (in Step 1) so you can access it quickly in future.

The first time you log in, consider putting a check mark in the 'Remember username' checkbox before clicking Log in. Doing so will make your browser automatically insert your username next time you visit the log in page. This check box will not cause the browser to store your password. However, your browser can do that if you allow it. password storage is controlled entirely by your web browser.

First time on Moodle?

The very first time you log into Moodle, you will be prompted to change your password.

To do this:

  1. Enter the temporary password that has been assigned to you (usually in the welcome email) into the 'Current Password' space.

  2. Enter your preferred password in the 'New Password' space and 'New password (again)' space.

  3. Click Save changes.  

This process is also used if we issue you with a new temporary password.
