This article is intended to assist parents and guardians in changing their own passwords. This process cannot be used by students. Students can change their own password using a different technique.


Parents and Guardians can change their Moodle password whenever they want to! This article shows how you can change your password.

Step-by-step guide

To change your password, follow these instructions:

  1. Log into Moodle.

  2. Look for your name in the top-right corner of the page. Click/tap on your name.

  3. Click/tap Preferences
  4. Click/tap Change password.
  5. You should now see the Change password screen.
  6. Enter your current password in the space provided.

  7. Enter your new password into 'New password' space and the 'New password (again)' space.

  8. Click/tap Save changes


Always take the time to choose a strong password. Using the same password you've used for other sites is risky, as is using the name of a child, pet or favourite television character. If you need some advice on selecting a password, read the article Setting a strong password.

Click to edit the macro below and add or change labels. Ideally, add the same labels you added using the label function. Try to choose words that describe your content (eg 'printer') rather than vague descriptors (eg 'error'). You can delete the itl-how-to-article label provided that you replace it with at least one relevant label.

When first creating the document, enter your @name in 'Created by' and add the //current date to 'Created on'. The initial status for documents should be 'Draft'. Edit the Article Status macro to change the status to 'Submitted' when ready to publish the article. Only change this to 'Complete' when you have taken the time to fully proof the article. Use 'For review' to mark documents that require checking, adding in a brief reason for the review and the person who should check the document. Optionally, add a date by which the document should be reviewed. These details should be removed when the status is set back to 'Complete'. Leave this section hidden.
