What is Course Connect?

This guide is being updated. Please use the ITR Form linked below if you have questions.

Course Connect is the Millsaps College Learning Management System (LMS). It allows students, faculty, and staff to participate in and create an online academic experience that coincides with in-person classes on campus. 

Powered by software called Moodle (similar to Blackboard), Course Connect is a course management system that allows faculty to upload syllabi or other files, host discussion forums, accept assignments electronically, create wikis, give quizzes, collect surveys, grade students, and much more. Committees, departments and administrative offices may use Course Connect to share information to specific groups of users.


For Course Connect support, please use the Instructional Technology Request (ITR) Form linked in the image below.
