Video: Completing assignments as a student

Let's go ahead and log in as the first student in our class. The student's name is Al Uminum, the username is al, so over on the right-hand side for Username simply type in al and then the password we set up was 12345. If you are using a Moodle installation from your school, you may need to contact your IT Department to have them set up some sample students for you and enroll them into your course. Click the Login button and we are taken into this user's account. We can then select the course Coral Reef Ecology and then entered into our course. You now have the ability to go in and see exactly what the students sees and how they would complete assignments. Let's step through completing a variety of the different assignments.

Moodle 1.9 Essential Training for Teachers
8h 34m Beginner May 28, 2009

Viewers: in countries Watching now:

Moodle is an online tool that allows educators to interact with students outside the classroom and manage a course from anywhere. In Moodle Essential Training for Teachers, Chris Mattia shows how this program works for teachers on three levels: disseminating information, creating a forum where ideas are exchanged, and assessing the progress of students. Chris shows how to build course materials with Moodle's HTML editor, post assignments, and save time by using Moodle's grade book to evaluate tests automatically and organize scores. Exercise files accompany the course.

Topics include:
  • Installing and configuring Moodle
  • Preparing media files for distribution inside a Moodle course
  • Posting instructions on the course home page
  • Setting up course-specific glossaries and databases
  • Building assignments students can complete online
  • Using Moodle's built-in email and discussion boards
  • Creating a wiki inside Moodle for students to build and contribute content
  • Developing multimedia exams to assess course comprehension

Completing assignments as a student

Let's go ahead and log in as the first student in our class. The student's name is Al Uminum, the username is al, so over on the right-hand side for Username simply type in al and then the password we set up was 12345. If you are using a Moodle installation from your school, you may need to contact your IT Department to have them set up some sample students for you and enroll them into your course. Click the Login button and we are taken into this user's account. We can then select the course Coral Reef Ecology and then entered into our course. You now have the ability to go in and see exactly what the students sees and how they would complete assignments. Let's step through completing a variety of the different assignments.

To begin click on the Assignments link under the Activities block in the upper left hand corner. Here we can see all the various assignments that we have created throughout this training. Let's step through one by one and simply complete them. Go ahead and click on the first one, Project Ideas. Here we are given the instructions that we gave to the students to please submit their top three choices for research project ideas. We'll go ahead and click the Edit my submission button. Then if you are following along with the Exercise Files, simply open the file Project Idea.txt from the Chapter 13 Exercise Files folder and the folder called al. Each student has had a file created for them to complete each assignment with, to help speed along the process. So we'll simply select the text that's here. Copy it with Command+ C or Ctrl+C, then jump back over to our course, click inside the blank and hit Command+V or Ctrl+V to paste the result.

Go ahead and scroll down at the bottom and simply click Save changes. The assignment has been completed. Let's go ahead and return back to the assignments page by clicking on Assignments. Here we can see that the assignment has been completed but is not yet been graded. Let's go ahead and complete the next assignment. Week 2 Personal Contribution. This is another online text submission. So click the Edit my submission button, then if you are following along with the Exercise Files, open the file weekly contribution.txt. We can go ahead and select the text that's there. Copy it with Command+C or Ctrl+C and paste it into the Submission blank. We can then scroll down at the bottom of the window and click Save changes. This completes the second assignment.

Let's go ahead and go back to the Assignments section and now we want to upload our Thesis Statement. So go ahead and click the link for Thesis Statement, we are given the instruction as to the parameters that we gave to the students as to how they should complete the assignment. We are told to upload a file. Here you can also see that we have the maximum upload size and depending on the operating system that you are using and your particular settings, this number may vary. We will go ahead and click the Browse button, navigate to our Chapter 13 folder, to the al folder and then select the file, Thesis Statement.doc. Click the Open button and click the button for Upload this file. The file is successfully uploaded, we can click Continue and now we can see the link to the Word document that we just uploaded and handed in to our instructor.

Let's return back to the Assignments page by clicking on Assignments. We'll upload our final research paper by clicking on Final Research Paper. We get out instructions that we have here, we even have a link to our Instructions to Authors, if we wanted to see that, we can simply click on the link and it would attempt to download that file that we uploaded to our students earlier. We will hit Cancel since we have already seen this and then we'll simply hit the Browse button, go back to the Chapter 13, al folder and select Final Research Paper.doc. Click Open and click the Upload this file button. The file is uploaded and we can see it here. Let's go ahead and return back to our Assignments section by clicking on Assignments and we'll complete the Poster Presentation.

We will click the button for Poster Presentation and we can see that the students need to show up to the poster presentation at the Research Symposium on May 8. So there is nothing for us to upload in this case. We'll go ahead and return back to the Assignments section and we can see that we have completed all the different assignments for this course. Let's go back to our main course page of BIOL432, we'll go ahead and complete the final exam. So click on the link for Quizzes inside of the Activities block and we can see the quiz that is set up for Week 15 of our Final Exam. Go ahead and click the link for that. We are given the instructions that we were provided and we are told that we are going to have a one hour time limit. Let's go ahead and Attempt to take the quiz now.

We are given one more warning that the quiz is going to have a time limit. We can begin taking the quiz. We'll go ahead and click OK and then we begin answering the questions. We can listen to each answer. Diploria labyrinthiformis, which is the correct answer, so we'll hit back. We'll select B click Submit, then we'll go to the Next page. We'll select the correct answer for each of these different items. The first one being Porietes asteroides, the second one being Acropora palmata and the third one being Mithrax sculptus.

We will click the Submit button. Go to the Next page. We are given the question about the body cavity type. In this case, it's acoelomate for a flatworm. We'll click the Submit button, then if we scroll down, click Next, here we are asked for the specific temperature range. We'll give a temperature range of 34, and hit Submit. This answer is Incorrect. Remember the temperature range that we set up was between 18 and 32 degrees, 34 falls outside of that range, so it does not show up as a correct answer.

We will go ahead click Next. Now we are asked the question about what's the name of this animal. We'll scroll down in the list and we'll give the answer of Gymnothorax funebris. We'll click the Submit button and we can see we have got that and enter correct. Go to the next question. Hermatypic corals and zooxanthellae have a symbiotic relationship. We'll go ahead and say True and Submit. We'll click Next.

Now we are asked about the sponge Aplysina Fistularis. That is the correct name of this sponge. We'll say True. We'll click Submit. Scroll down and go to the Next question and here we are provided with our essay question. Again it's the map from Google Maps that we have imported into our exam. We'll scroll down and we can give an answer here of 'Turneff atoll was formed as a ring of coral that has expanded out in all directions leaving an open lagoon in the middle of the reef.' We will go ahead and scroll down and click the Submit button, then click the Submit all and finish button. We are told then that we are about to close this attempt and if we close the attempt, we'll no longer be able to change our answers. That's fine. We'll click OK, we are given our score 6 out of 8 and remember that one of the questions was an essay question, so that drops one question down because it will need to be graded by us in a later movie and one of the questions we answered incorrectly, so it's graded this exam properly.

Let's go ahead and click the Finish review button. We are given a Summary of our attempts, date and time that we completed the exam and the Grade that we got and any feedback that has been provided to us automatically. Let's go ahead and return back to our course BIOL432 and feel free to click around to the other options inside of your course, since you are logged in as a student. You may also want to note that over in the left hand side, in the Administration block all the parameters that you as the faculty member have are no longer here. You only have Grades and Profile. If we click on Grades, we can see the grades that have been entered in for us. The only grade that's been added is the Final Exam grade. Nothing else has been graded. We'll do that in the next movie.

For now go ahead and click back on BIOL432, then go up to the upper right hand corner and click the Logout button. The other students that you have in your class, Elvis, Eugene, Johnny and Sally. Go ahead and log in as each of these students by simply using the Username that's associated with their first name and the password of 12345. Then use the files that have been provided to you as part of the Exercise Files or make up your own answers and complete all of the assignments for all the different users inside of your class.

This way we'll have grades for everybody inside of your course to really work with the Grade Book and we'll pick that up next.
