Taking Online Courses

Most online courses at FRC are delivered through our Moodle website at http://frc.crhosts.com . You can find out more about Moodle by using the Moodle link on the left of this page.

You are not automatically added to the online course area when you register for classes.  You'll need to create an account in our Moodle site, then receive an "enrollment key" from your instructor to enter the course area.  You only need to use the enrollment key the first time you enter the course.  If you don't get an enrollment key from your instructor by the start of your course you should email your instructor. A link to their email can be found in MyFRC along with your course information.  You can also use the directory feature at the top of this website, and you can figure out your instructor's email address if you know their name by following instructions below.

Instructions about how to create a Moodle account and many other Frequently Asked Questions can be found on our Moodle site under the "Moodle Help" menu on the upper left.

New!  There are six excellent videos with text and audio options on the front page of our Moodle website to help you decide if you are ready to take an online course and advise you about how to be a successful online student. Your instructor may recommend or require you to view these videos.  But even if they don't, it is highly recommended that you watch all six videos even if you have previously taken online courses.

To Find Out Your Instructor's Name: Check your printed schedule, go to MyFRC and login to check your schedule online, or look up your course by going to www.frc.edu and using the "Course Search" feature at the top right of the page.
