CC Online courses are now being run through a Luminis portal
(InsideCC, InsideBC, or InsidePC). Students can log into the portal by clicking on the InsideCC
icon on the left side of our webpages, or by going to the Student Login
pages linked on the right side of our webpages. All communication to
students will be sent through the School-Assigned
email addresses (email.cerrocoso.edu, email.bakersfieldcollege.edu or
email.portervillecollege.edu). Students have from the Friday before the class starts,
until the start date, at 8pm, to access their online courses. If they do NOT
access the course within that timeframe, they will be dropped to allow room
for wait listed students.
Do I need an Enrollment key to access my Online
No. Now that our courses are being run through the
InsideCC Portal, you will not need an enrollment key to access the
course. As long as you are registered, you can access the course from
the My Courses tab on the Portal.
If you do not see the course on the
My Courses tab, check your Schedule on the Student tab to make sure that
you are registered in the course. Wait listed students cannot access
their online courses until they become registered in the course.
Your login is your school assigned email address
(@email.cerrocoso.edu, @email.bakersfieldcollege.edu, or
@email.portervillecollege.edu). At any time, you can use the "Forgot Password" link on
the InsideCC login page to reset your password.
if I can no longer access the online course, even though I've already been
participating in the class?
If you do not see the course on your My Courses tab, after you
have already been participating, you have been dropped. This could be a
result of your instructor dropping you, or a system glitch. Please
contact your instructor. The Directory linked on the right can provide
you with your instructor's email address.
I copy text from MS Word, and paste it into the Moodle text box, a bunch
of coding comes with it. What can I do?
If you are trying to copy text from Microsoft Word into
any of the Moodle text boxes, sometimes, coding appears when you hit the
submit button. To avoid this, you can try using the Clean Word HTML
button (at the top of the edit box): paste the text in, then use ctrl+a
to select all of the text, then click on the Clean Word HTML button. Of
you can FIRST copy and paste the text into Notepad to remove the coding

Moodle. Another option is to use OpenOffice. It is a free program that
is similar to Word and can open Office documents. Paste the text from MS
Word into OpenOffice by using the "Paste from Word" function. THEN, copy
and paste from OpenOffice into Moodle. None of the coding will come with
