Moodle - Adding Basic Content and Setting up Courses
Adding content to Moodle is easier than you think!
Below you can access instruction booklets to help you upload content to your Moodle site.
Moodle can do a wide variety of things to assist learning, but most people start by uploading basic content such as handouts, powerpoints or links to useful websites. Even if after your training session, if you can only remember how to add links to websites, then that is a start, and already you could have useful reference points and content for your students.
In this session you will learn how to:
Add headings and labels to organise and layout your course
Add links to websites
Upload documents to your Moodle site
You will also be given a personal 'test' course to be able to practice what you have learned in the session and build up your confidence before you go LIVE
If you begin to build your test course and decide you want it to become your actual Moodle site - we can very easily transfer the course to the appropriate departmental category, without you having to do any more work
Another useful collaborative learning tool in Moodle is the Glossary. Think of the Glossary as a collaborative research tool. A tutor can set up a glossary on any topic and ask students to add entries into it. This works really well as a study centre activity.
