I tried those default user/password, but it didn’t work. I suspect someone initially installed Moodle and applied differenct account credentials. I’ll check with some of my former colleagues and see if I can find some way to crack it. I’ve taught college courses on Moodle and some of its competing platforms, and even served as a user-side admin for one, so I understand how an online course delivery platform should work. But this seems to be stuck in the “student” view mode and won’t allow me to create a brand new course or enroll students. If I find a break-through, I will be sure to report back.
After resetting everything and consulting some former Moodle server administrator friends, I finally managed to get into the Moodle admin account without needing a live internet connection. This may help others" - -the Moodle admin is "firstname.lastname@example.org" and password is “Rachel+1”. From there you can create new users and assign roles of Course Creator, Teacher, Student, etc, then create a new course, edit it, enroll users, and add content.
