NYSUT Education & Learning Trust uses the Moodle platform to deliver its online courses. Courses run eight or ten weeks. Participants should log in daily to review announcements, respond to discussion board posts and upload assignments. 

Participants are to purchase the Required Text(s) for online courses via their own personal, favorite bookstore. Please see Course Descriptions for required text(s). Students are required to have the proper text(s) by the class start date.

Participants will receive an email from ELT with the enrollment key for their online course(s) by 5:00 pm on the day that the course begins. If you do not receive an email, be sure to check your spam folder. Please notify ELT at of any changes to your email address to ensure receipt of login information.

Participants should contact ELT at for problems with passwords and/or technical support. 

Please note that the Moodle Platform works best on a computer (PC or Mac). Using tablets or other handheld devices is not recommended. While you may use the device of your choice, we can only provide technical support to those who are using a computer (PC or Mac).

Incompletes cannot be granted for online courses.
