Authoring/Publishing Course Content

Three systems are used for both online and face to face curriculum delivery at the Emily Carr Univeristy of Art + Design. They are the Moodle course management system (CMS), the WordPress Blogging system and the MediaWiki system.

Moodle is a course management system (CMS) that allows faculty to post course content, communicate with students, set up quizzes or surveys and manage grades online. Visit Emily Carr’s Moodle Courses, or find out more information about Moodle Resources or Moodle Learning on this website or by using the Moodle drop down menus located below. Faculty, if you need a new course shell/shells for the upcoming or current semester(s), please log in to the Moodle Courses site, go to the Instructor Services drop-down menu and select, “request a new course“.


Emily Carr’s Blogs using WordPress software are available for Departments, Courses, Faculty and Research Initiatives. At this time we do not provide student blogs. Faculty interested in setting up a course, research or department blog, should email a request to Teaching and Learning Centre. Please see our Blogging Services section for more information.


Emily Carr’s Wiki is for Emily Carr students, staff, faculty and collaborators to create resources, courses, documentation or thinking online spaces. Faculty interested in setting up a course, research or department blog, should email a request to Teaching and Learning Centre.

Adobe Connect Web Conferencing – Faculty teaching online courses may be interested in getting setup with an Adobe Connect account for web conferencing with your students,  offered in collaboration with BC Campus. An instructor will be setup with an Adobe Connect account “room” that is accessible as a web link that can then also be embedded into a Moodle course.
