Talk:Getting started for administrators

Jump to: navigation, search

Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Getting started for administrators.

Initial thoughts

This page may not go anyplace, but I will try to devote some time to it. The Moodle community does have brave people who may have never installed anything on a web server but want to try. Or have been told that "That Moodle thing is up, here is the admin password, have a nice day."

As our students have different learning styles, this page will attempt to present an over view in a different manner. Fortunately, there is a lot of great documentation for a novice administrator, so the task of writing will be less demanding than in this pages organization.

At this moment there are two broad areas in my mind: Installation and the Site Administration Block. Those two concepts covers a lot of material and I am wondering how to organize it. --chris collman 07:39, 19 June 2008 (CDT)
