Moodle 2 adjustments

I added some infomation for 2.0. I am not sure why we have "Common adjustments" but I went along with it just to be friendly to history (I would delete it or put it as "tips and trips section at the end. I put in more links in the whole page. Deleted the lightbulb expand hide section tools because they have nothing to do with the course administration link.

I personally like the new 2.0 section which does not describe much but does give links. As time goes by, the new should move up and the old move down. As usual, I expect my edits to be edited and it is always appreciated. --chris collman 15:59, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Administration block links

Is this a copy of the admin course block? It looks like it should be. If so the following are missing

  • Turn editing on
  • Help
  • Teacher Forum

Do these pages exist already? --Darren Smith 01:39, 26 March 2006 (WST)

Oh and database (phpmysql) which is optional but very useful --Darren Smith 05:35, 26 March 2006 (WST)
Hi Darren, please note that Help in the Administration block should link to Teacher documentation. There are not yet pages for Turn editing on or Teacher Forum. If you wish to write some documentation for them then please create the pages. There is already a database page. --Helen Foster 04:30, 27 March 2006 (WST)

Out of date

I was checking to see if the admin course block said grades or gradebook. There was no picture. I added one and then happen to read the text. There seems to be information about sections here that does not belong. Then there are references to scales which are in the site administration block. It would be nice if we changed the name of this page to Course Admininstration block. Seems like this is really what this page is about.

Can I make the edit changes concerning scales, sections and other things not found in the course administration block? A little distraction from my pondering Grades :) Thanks --chris collman 08:56, 5 June 2008 (CDT)

Example, needs more work but

All of the links in the administration block are only available to teachers of the course. Students will receive their own version of the block. More information about specific links can be found in the box to the right.

Features in the administration block allow teachers Assign roles in a course to any site user (for example student and other teachers). There is a Grades link to view the course gradebook, where the teacher can also create custom grading scales and letter or word displays instead of a number score. The Outcomes link is a new 1.9 feature. When enabled in settings, Groups allow the teacher to separated students for different activities. Some teachers have the rights to backup and restore their course. The import link will allow the teacher to bring in all or parts of other courses they teach on the Moodle site. The reset link is a quick way to use a course again for a different set of students. Specific student activity can be seen as logs with the Reports link. The Question bank can be accessed from the Course Administration block instead of the Quiz activity. The entire course file structure for student and teacher materials is located here.

need to check links and maybe break up or reorganize the paragraph in something other that the listed order. --chris collman 09:27, 5 June 2008 (CDT)
