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.
The next repository that we are going to set up is Google Docs. Now to begin, make sure you're logged out of your account and go ahead go up to the upper right-hand corner and click on Login button and log in as the administrator, and if you are following along with me, the password we set is 12345. Go ahead and hit the Login button. Now scroll down on the left-hand side, look for the Settings block, and click on the link for Site administration. And scroll down again and find the Plugins link and click on that. Scroll down again and click on the Repositories link and look for the link for Manage repositories. When the Manager repositories page opens up, go ahead scroll down in that list until you find the listing for Google Docs.
Click the dropdown menu where it currently says Disabled and set it to Enabled and Visible. The Configuration page for Google Docs Plugin shows up, and it's going to ask you for the Repository plugin name. Goahead and leave this blank and simply click the Save button. That's all there is to it. It was that easy to go ahead and set up Google Docs to merge into your course. Now go up to the upper right- hand corner and log out of the administrator account. In the next movie we'll log in as our user account, and we will step through using the Google Docs Repository in your course.
