How to Read the Course Code in Moodle
Interpreting the course codes found in Moodle can be confusing. Below is a "cheat sheet" to crack the code!
Look at this example: 201822-Discovering the Old Testament-BLIT-1003-22083
Here is the breakdown of the course code:
|201820||Discovering the Old Testament||BLIT-1103||22083|
|Term Code||Course Name||Catalog Number||Course Reference Number (CRN)|
Here's how to interpret the Term Code:
Academic year – the first 4 digits (2018 is the 2017-2018 Academic Year)
Semester - the 5th digit Term Code (The "2" in the example above) The semester codes are: 2 = Fall, 5 = Spring, 9 = Summer
Type of course – The last digit in the Term Code (0= traditional undergraduate, 2= Adult Professional, and 4 = Graduate level course) The Type of course codes are: 0 = Traditional Undergraduate, 2 = Adult Professional Undergrad course, and 4 = Graduate level)
So, the term code 201820 would be a Fall 2017 Traditional undergraduate course.
A term code of 201852 would be a Spring 2018 Adult Professional course.
A term code of 201894 would be a Summer Graduate level course.
Also, using the Catalog number (BLIT-1103) and CRN (last 5 digits ) can be very helpful if you need to submit a helpdesk ticket. When submitting a helpdesk ticket, simply stating "I'm having a Moodle issue in my Old Testament course" is not very helpful. However, in your ticket submission, please state the course name (Discovering the Old Testament), along with the Catalog number and CRN (BLIT-1103-20283). Include detailed information about the problem. This type of information is very helpful to the Service Desk. This helps to "zero in" on the specific course where the student is having issues.
