Managing Moodle Courses

  • A full teacher has full control over all settings for a course, including restricting other teachers
  • Choice of course formats such as by week, by topic or a discussion-focussed social format
  • Flexible array of course activities - Forums, Journals, Quizzes, Resources, Choices, Surveys, Assignments, Chats, Workshops
  • Recent changes to the course since the last login can be displayed on the course home page - helps give sense of community
  • Most text entry areas (resources, forum postings, journal entries etc) can be edited using an embedded WYSIWYG HTML editor
  • All grades for Forums, Journals, Quizzes and Assignments can be viewed on one page (and downloaded as a spreadsheet file)
  • Full user logging and tracking - activity reports for each student are available with graphs and details about each module (last access, number of times read) as well as a detailed "story" of each students involvement including postings, journal entries etc on one page.
  • Mail integration - copies of forum posts, teacher feedback etc can be mailed in HTML or plain text.
  • Custom scales - teachers can define their own scales to be used for grading forums, assignments and journals
  • Courses can be packaged as a single zip file using the Backup function. These can be restored on any Moodle server.
