  • If your WikiEducator username has a space, for example Patricia Schlicht - use patriciaschlicht
  • Your initial password for the Moodle forum is changeme and you will be prompted to change your password. (Note this password is not the same as your WikiEducator password.)
  • If this doesn't work -- create a new account
  • If this doesn't work - -don't stress -- all the instructions are posted in the wiki under the link provided above, our home page.
