In this course, author Chris Mattia helps educators create online courses that complement classroom-based instruction and foster student interaction using the free learning management system Moodle. The course details the basics of setting up a test environment, disseminating course information, creating forums, and assessing student progress. Tutorials on building course materials with Moodle's built-in HTML editor, preparing and posting various types of media, uploading assignments, and evaluating tests automatically are also included.
Before we wrap this title up, I want to point out just a couple of quick places to get some additional help, as you're working in your Moodle course. Now since Moodle is Open-Source the development of Moodle 2 is constantly on going. So every time you download our update Moodle, you're going to get a new set of features and the help files are continuously being updated. You can access contextual help throughout Moodle, by looking for any other places where you see the yellow ball with the question mark in it. If you click on that link, you'll get a pop up window that'll give you some contextual help about whatever it is that item is.
If you go into just about any item, so for instance, if we click on the Update button for the Syllabus page, and we scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, you'll notice there's a link down at the bottom that says Moodle Docs for this page, this is the bottom of every single page and it takes you out to moodle.org's web site, where the embedded full documentation is located at. What's very helpful about this? Is if you go to moodle.org, there's a very good community of users that are using Moodle all across the world.
They're communicating and finding out what sort of things that other teachers need and then the developers are working on building that. So, if you're teacher, go ahead and join the Moodle community, and get involved with providing your feedback directly to the community, as to how you would like Moodle to function. If you're developer, please be sure to go to moodle.org, and go to the Development section, and get involved with helping to build some additional code and help us refine and make Moodle better for everyone.
