To help improve Moodle we may place small data files, known as cookies, onto your computer. The cookies we use enable you to log in and navigate through the system. They're just used to make Moodle work better for you. They do this by:

  • Remembering how you like things displayed
  • Measuring how you use Moodle so we can make sure it meets your needs
  • Ensuring Moodle works properly

You can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish. To learn more about cookies and how to manage them visit Or please read on to find out more about how and where we use cookies.

How we use cookies

Moodle uses cookies for several purposes but the primary use of cookies is to log you on and to keep you logged on as you navigating through the system. The are six cookies used in MOODLE and a full list is available from the Learning Technologies Manager at Moulton College.

Measuring Moodle usage (Google Analytics)

We use Google Analytics to collect information about how people use Moodle. We do this to make sure it's meeting your needs and to understand how we could improve it. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. We do not collect or store your personal information (eg your name or address) so this data cannot be used to identify who you are.
