About The Loom
Axis Mundi is the first set of courses available on The Reclaiming Loom. The Reclaiming Loom is an online web-based learning platform, built using the community-sourced shared learning platform called Moodle. The Loom is custom-designed for the desktop environment. However, because it is web-based, it is also available to you from any device, just by going to the site from your usual web browser.
You can learn more about moodle in general from the main Moodle.org website.
Shortly before the course starts you will receive an email with your username and password. These are your initial 'login credentials'. Once you receive this email, then you can go directly to: The Loom, or you can also get there by clicking the LOGIN button from the homepage of ReclaimingLoom.org
We will be posting some short little demo videos here to help you get familiar with The Loom. Please check back to this page as we will be updating it in the next few days and weeks.
This is a short (3 minutes) video that shows the process of logging in to The Loom.
