In Moodle, a teacher has responsibility for the materials in their own course. They often also manage enrolments and are able to change the layout of the course page. This quick start guide introduces Moodle's features to those with the Teacher role.
Course set up
A course is a space on a Moodle site where teachers can add learning materials for their students. A teacher may have more than one course and a course may include more than one teacher and more than one group of learners. See the screencast What is a course?.
By default a regular teacher can't add a new course. See Adding a new course for information on how courses may be created.
A course can display its materials in a number of ways or 'formats' for example in weekly sections or (named) topic sections. You can show all the sections at once or just reveal one at a time. See Course settings for more information, or watch the screencast How to lay out your course.
Course sections may be renamed by turning on the editing and clicking the configuration icon underneath the section name. Sections may also be moved by drag and drop and sections added or removed by clicking the + or - underneath the bottom section. See Course homepage for more information or watch the screencast on Editing course sections and Understanding the edit icons.
You can also add elements known as 'blocks' to the right, left or both sides of your central learning area (depending on your theme). For more information see Blocks and the screencast What are blocks?
Adding learning materials
While Moodle can be used for displaying course materials, it is most effective when students can engage with each other and their teacher. Moodle calls static materials such as word processed documents and presentations 'Resources' and more interactive and graded tasks 'Activities'. The activities available may vary according to what your administrator has enabled in your site and may include non-standard activities installed as extra plugins.
Files and folders can be uploaded via drag and drop as in the screencast Dragging and dropping files into Moodle or via the File picker as the screencast Uploading files into Moodle demonstrates. The documentation Working with files gives more information on how to add different types of files as resources to your course.
When the editing is turned on, Moodle's Activity chooser offers resources and activities for the teacher to select. Clicking on a button displays information about the features of any particular activity so you can see if it meets your needs. For more details, watch the Activity chooser screencast.
Standard activities include Forum, Glossary and Quiz. Students may submit work to an Assignment or give their opinions in a customisable Feedback. The full list of standard activities is here: Activities.
Before a learner can access your course, they must first be authenticated on the site and that is the responsibility of the site administrator.
There are several enrolment methods available to a teacher. What is available again depends on the site administrator. The admin might enrol students into course automatically, or the teacher might be able to enrol students from Course administration > Users >Enrolled users. This is the Manual enrolment method. Other options can be seen in Course administration > Users > Enrolment methods and include Self enrolment and Guest access.
Vorlage:Note An enrolment key may be set if Self enrolment is enabled so that only students with the key can enter. The screencast How learners access your course gives more information on course enrolment.
If completion tracking has been enabled for the site and in Course administration > Edit settings, you can then set completion conditions in activity settings. A checkbox will appear next to the activity and a student may either be allowed to tick it manually, or a tick will display once criteria for that particular activity have been met. This feature can be combined with Course completion so that when certain activities have been completed and/or grades obtained, the course itself is marked complete.
Badges can also be issued, manually or based on completion criteria to act as a motivator and record of course progress.
A course can be set to display everything to everyone all the time, or it can be very restrictive, displaying certain items at certain times, to certain groups or based on performance in previous tasks.
Course items and sections may be manually hidden using the 'hide' icon when the editing is turned on. If Conditional activities have been enabled by the administrator then a Restrict access section will display in each course activity and resource, allowing you to choose how and when this item will be revealed, and whether to hide it completely or show it greyed out with the conditions for access.
