If you (as the professor) want to log into WeBWorK via Moodle, you need to first manually create a WeBWorK account using your Swarthmore email as the login name and permission of level of professor.  Once this account is created, you will be able to log into WebWorK via Moodle.  You may want to have two accounts for yourself: one with your username and with with your email so that you can log on both ways.
