Where to get help

The most important information any student needs to know is who/where to go for assistance.

My Bison ID/Okta

Tech Tips

Preferred browsers

Moodle and most programs used in WCC courses work best in Google Chrome or Firefox. You can identify which browser you are using by looking for these icons:

Firefox logo
Google Chrome logo

Keep your browser updated

Popup blockers

Clear history/cache

Doing this regularly can help your browser work more effectively.

Smart phones and classwork?

Use your smartphone and the Okta app to check your campus email or view your courses in Moodle. Students should not take a quiz/exam or complete an entire assignment on a smartphone.

Internet signal strength

A reliable internet connection is essential to successfully completing online classwork, especially quizzes or exams. If your internet connection strength varies, consider the following:

  • Hardwire (use an appropriate cable) to connect your computer directly to the router in your home.
  • If you don’t have the appropriate cable to connect directly, sit as close as possible to the router while completing a quiz or exam.
  • Consider coming to campus to complete your quiz or exam in the library. There are over 20 computers there for student use.

If you can’t log into Okta contact IT support

You can log into Okta, then access Moodle but you find you have questions about your course(s)

  • Email or call your instructor; their contact information is in the course, the syllabus and on the Course Dashboard
  • Still having trouble? Contact eLearning by email: wcc-de@waynecc.edu
  • Or call eLearning: 919-739-7029 or 919-739-7023

Questions or concerns about your course?

Nearly all WCC curriculum courses use Moodle. How much you do in Moodle for any course depends on the instructor and the course format. Learning how to work in Moodle and what to do if things aren’t working correctly is essential for your success.

The following are tips for success when using Moodle or taking a fully online course.

Tip 1
Moodle works best in Chrome or Firefox, remember to use the most current version:

Tip 2
Online Test Proctoring is used at the instructor’s discretion in any course. In general, WCC uses one of two products:

  • Respondus LockDown Browser, a special secure browser that does not allow you to open different windows, copy, or print quiz content.
  • Respondus Monitor, which includes video proctoring.

Both products work best with a hardwired internet connection. If you are using a wireless connection, be aware that signal fluctuations can bump you out of a test. Follow the directions posted in your course and various screen prompts carefully. If you have trouble or are bumped out of a test, let your instructor know immediately. Please contact eLearning if needed.

Note: Respondus is already installed on the computers in the WCC Erwin Library, located on the third floor of the WLC building.

Tip 3
Contact your instructor if you have questions, concerns, technical issues while submitting work, or other issues staying up to date with your course work. Their email address is always located in the course syllabus.

Tip 4
Want to brush up on your online learning and Moodle skills? Are you a brand-new student who isn’t at all sure what Moodle is? We have a tool for you!

Log in to Moodle and click on “Moodle Orientation – v.2.” This Moodle course allows you to practice valuable skills such as submitting an assignment, taking a quiz, or participating in an online discussion. Completing the course earns you valuable skills and a digital badge that appears in your Moodle profile.

Tip 5
Print your syllabus and course schedule (if provided).

Tip 6
Check your email regularly- at least every other day. Your student email is how your instructors and campus services will communicate with you.

Tip 7
The Enrollment Verification Quiz must be completed in all online and hybrid courses a student is enrolled in.

Tip 8
Approximately 30 computers are available during campus hours in the Wayne Learning Center Library.

Microsoft Office / Google Drive

Currently enrolled students have access to Microsoft Office 365 for free.

Currently enrolled students also have access to Google Drive. On the student email page, locate the checkerboard square icon to access Google Drive resources.

You can use either or both products depending on which you are familiar with or is required in your course(s).

Student Identity and Authentication

Wayne Community College takes all appropriate measures to protect student identity, requiring unique usernames and passwords for each student to access Okta and the affiliated resources and programs. Student identity is initially verified during the WCC application process. North Carolina employs Residency Determination Services to confirm the applicant’s identity using official documents and state and federal databases as part of the in-state or out-of-state tuition determination. Further, all students benefit from best practices using a unique username and password combination. Passwords expire every 90 days and all students have access to 24/7 support via the My Bison ID page.

Students bear significant responsibility in protecting the security of their unique username and password as detailed in the Technology Acceptable Use Procedure (TAUP) located in the General Catalog and Student Handbook. The TAUP defines as unacceptable the user of another person’s account, divulging passwords to anyone else, and divulging personal, confidential, or sensitive information.
