Instructors can link their Moodle course to McGraw-Hill's online learning platform, Connect. Connect contains a library of online textbooks and integrated activities you can use to enhance your course offerings. To access Connect content, create a course on McGraw-Hill's site. From there, you can use Moodle's External Tool activity to share it with students.
Before you start, you may need access to the following:
- an Instructor of Record or Other Editing Teacher role in a Moodle course
- an Instructor account for McGraw-Hill Connect. You can create one at this site. Please use your Bryn Mawr email when creating the account.
Set Up a Connect course

- From the menu that opens, select Connect.
- Sign into your account, which should be connected to your Bryn Mawr email. Please go to this site if you need to create an account.

- On the Find a title menu, use the Search title, author, or subject bar to look for virtual textbooks. Select the book you want to use in your course.
