Welcome to Western Oregon University's portal to online course materials. Whether you are taking a fully online class, a hybrid course, or a traditional face-to-face class that also has course material online, this site will act as your gateway. WOU's primary online course management system is WOU Online, which we also call Moodle. However, not all instructors use WOU Online. Some instructors use their own Web page or some other method. If you're unsure, contact your instructor for this information.
Please visit the website of the Division of Extended Programs to see a list of online programs and resources.
The college of Education also offers online courses. For more information about these courses and the web-based MAT program, please call 503-838-8471.
Generally, all online course materials are available anywhere you have Internet access. However, if you are using WOU Online (Moodle), a computer on campus, or WOU Email, you must first set up your WOU network username and password (your Pawprint). You may do this three business days after you are officially admitted to WOU.
If you are certain it has been more than three business days since you were officially admitted, and you are still not able to set your password, then contact Computing Services at 503-838-8925 or stop by their help desk in ITC009.
If your course uses WOU Online (Moodle), your login and password will be the same as your Pawprint login. (Please see the above steps under Campus Resources on how to obtain this information). You can, of course, login to Moodle through the WOU Portal, which logs you into many systems at the same time, but the following method will work even when the portal is down:
Once logged in, consider clicking your name in the upper right and updating your profile, which will allow you to add some information about yourself and even upload a picture of yourself. This information is not available to anyone outside your course. If you have problems accessing the course content, please contact your instructor first.
If you're having problems, training and assistance with online classes is available to students, faculty, and staff in the Technology Resource Center, located in ITC204. You may also call 503-838-8965 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Faculty interested in using a course management tool should also contact the Technology Resource Center.
If you are having technical difficulties with a WOU computer, or if you have gone through the Account Lookup steps without success, please contact Computing Services, located in ITC009, at 503-838-8925. Please note that Computing Services offers limited support for machines not maintained by WOU.
