Moodle

Moodle is a learning management system where students can access online course materials, take weekly quizzes, and take course examinations. Online students participate in instructor-led online discussions. The CDET Moodle portal is at usmc.usalearning.net.

Once a student is enrolled in a seminar-based distance education program on MarineNet, their regional office will have a Moodle account created for them. The student will receive an email containing login information and additional information pertinent to the program requirements with regard to Moodle.

There is an introductory tutorial about CDET's academic integrity policy in the Moodle writing center.

Writing Center

The writing center on Moodle has valuable, knowledge-on-demand resources, materials, and exercises for students to improve their writing abilities and attain their writing goals. Students can also receive help and feedback on papers, or work one-on-one with a writing instructor.

To navigate to the writing center from the Moodle dashboard, click on your course, find the CDET Links section in the navigation column on the left, then click Writing Center.

  • Under Academic Integrity, students can read and view important, must-know information about personal integrity, collaboration, and plagiarism.
  • Under Writing Guides, students will find our cornerstone writing booklet, "Writing Tips at a Glance," which provides across-the-board writing guidance for papers and essays, as well as other helpful articles.
  • Under Writing Issues, self-tutorials and exercises answer specific writing questions.
  • Under Writing Courses, there is a document that describes the various writing courses on MarineNet and how to access them.
