How do I find the short name of my Moodle course?

The course short name is a unique identifier for each module that appears in Moodle. If you are asked for your course’s short name for troubleshooting:

  1. Go to your course in Moodle.
  2. Click Edit Settings from the Administration block.
  3. The course short name appears in the General section on that screen.
