Simple Moodle 3.2+
By Ben Audsley, Electronic Resources Manager
This course is for you
A basic introduction to Moodle!
The course provides a basic introduction to Moodle, for people who have never used Moodle before or have basic understanding of Moodle and want to learn more!
The course begins with the Getting to know Moodle section, where I will explain what a VLE is and what it does, as well as focusing on Moodle itelf. Ill then give a tour of the moodle interface and explain how to edit user profiles and preferences.
Next, I will show learners how to create a new Moodle course, how to add users, and how to enrol these users into various Moodle courses.
The Editing Moodle courses section focuses on introducing learners to the moodle course page, and ill explain how to edit the course, what each of the icons within moodle do and mean, as well as introducing the activity chooser and the Atto text editor.
We will then move on to adding resources such as page, urls, books and files and folders to the course, before adding various learning activities including lessons, chat, choices, forums and glossaries.
The Mutlimedia section focuses on adding variosu multimedia elements throughout your course - including images, video, audio, podcasts and Youtube Videos.
This course is slightly different to other online courses – the course content and lessons will be interspersed with the creation of a special exemplar course, where the skills learnt in the course will be used to build a ready made interactive Moodle course, which will be available for download too!
I have also added 5 learning activities, so that learners can practice what is being taught in the course, and these learning activities add up to create another exemplar course, which is also downloadable.
I ntroduce each lesson with a description, and follow this up by showing learners how to actually do it for yourself. I actively encourage learners to watch the examples lessons, where examples are shown of all the topics covered within the section. I also encourage participants to use the Moodle Cloud course, that we create at the beginning, to practice the things I teach, and build up their confidence and their own set of Moodle courses.
So, If you want to learn Moodle, why not sign up today?
