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.
Now let's go ahead and set up our YouTube repository. To begin, go ahead and log in to your Moodle server by clicking the Login link in the upper right-hand corner, and make sure that you log in as the administrator account. So if you're following along, the username is admin and the password is 12345. I'll go ahead and click the Login link, and I'll scroll down on the left-hand side, and we're going to go to Site administration. I'm going to scroll down again. We're going to click on Plugins, scroll down again, click on Repositories, and I'll click on the link for Manage repositories.
This time go ahead and scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, and the last item down here is YouTube videos. Go ahead and click the dropdown menu for that and click Enabled and visible. The YouTube repository type configure will come up, and we can go ahead and leave this field blank and just simply click the Save button. And that's all you have to do to configure YouTube. It's very easy, and it works great. So I'll go up to the upper right-hand corner and click the Logout button, and in the next movie we'll log in as our teacher account, and will link a YouTube video directly into your course.
