Moodle: Link to McGraw-Hill

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

  1. Go to and click Sign in.
  2. From the menu that opens, select Connect.
  3. 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.
  4. You will be taken to the My Courses page of your Connect account. Select Add Course.
  5. 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.
  6. On the next page, provide a Course Name. We recommend using the same one as your Moodle course. Select US/Eastern as your time zone. You can also provide Registration dates and a Section Name.
  7. When finished, click Create Course.
