Hi and welcome to Moodle 2 Essential Training for Teachers. I'm Chris Mattia, Educational Technologist at Art Center College of Design. The most common use for Moodle by teachers is to create an online component to your existing, traditional classroom-based class. We'll begin by going step by step through everything you need to know to install and configure your own Moodle test server. I'll show you all the essential skills you'll need to have, such as posting documents and information to your students, setting up your Gradebook, and creating your first online assignment.
We'll also learn about Moodle's new built-in HTML Editor. I'll show you features that will make communicating with your students easier, like forums that facilitate conversations beyond the walls of your classroom. I'll show you how to configure and use the new Moodle 2 repositories to pull files out of the cloud and into your course. I'll even teach you how to develop a multimedia exam to assess your students' comprehension of learning outcomes. There is a lot more to Moodle that can save you time and enhance your students' learning experience, so let's get started.
