Moodle is ISU's "learning management system." It allows students to participate in courses that are offered totally or partially online. Some instructors may use it just to provide students with online course descriptions or handouts, for online discussions, or to let students see their grades. If Moodle is used for one of your classes, just sign in to BengalWeb, and then click the Moodle icon near the top of the screen.
Google Apps at ISU - email & more!
Your Google Apps at ISU account includes email ("Gmail"), Google Calendar, Google Docs, and other powerful Google features. You get 7+ GB of storage space, and an ISU email address that is yours for life. Learn more about Google Apps.
You must check your ISU email frequently. Official University communication will be sent to your ISU email address.

We recommend that you check your email every day, and more often as necessary.
If you already have another email account you'd like to keep using, set up forwarding so that you'll receive your important ISU messages. Find out how. But first think about making your ISU email your primary address. Remember, your account is good for life, and it comes with many helpful features that will make life as a student easier.
