Log in to Moodle (via AIRS/BUSEL or Moodle Server/App)

Before you can log in to moodle, you must first create a Moodle account via STARS (you will need to be registered on SRS/AIRS/BUSEL to do this):

The first time you enrol on or create a Moodle course page via STARS, your Moodle account is created with the following details:

  • Your username is the same as your Bilkent ID number; i.e., your student/personnel number.
  • Your password is a random one generated the first time you log in to moodle through SRS/AIRS.

You do not need to know your Moodle password as long as you log in to the Moodle service through SRS/AIRS.

If you want to log in directly to the semester Moodle server or use the new Moodle app, first you will have to Create a Password for Your Moodle Account (for Direct/App Login).

This page describes four ways to log in to Moodle:

  1. Via SRS (for students)
  2. Via AIRS/BUSEL (for instructors)
  3. Via Moodle Server
  4. Via Moodle App

1. Log in to Moodle via SRS (for students)

You can access the SRS system via the STARS webpage.

  • Log in to your SRS account using your Bilkent student ID and your SRS password

To set a new password:

  • On the screen that appears, search for your account using:
    • EITHER your username (this is your Bilkent personnel number)
    • OR the email address registered for you on the AIRS system

This is the confirmation screen:

  • Open the email sent to you by the system (it will be in the email address you have registered on STARS) and click the password reset link. The link is only valid for 30 minutes.

  • On the Moodle screen that opens, reset the password and click the “Save Changes” button.
