Video: Creating lists

Now that we have begun editing content inside of our Wiki and we have created a second page, let's go ahead and learn how to create some lists. To do this, let's click on the link for Packing List, so that we are inside of the Packing List page. Next, we'll click on the Edit tab, so that we can continue editing the content inside of the Packing List page. At the end of the line for Packing List, let's type return and give the students some instructions as to what we want them to do. We'll type in Please make a list of all items your group will need to conduct your research in the field. Don't forget any additional materials or parts you will need for any equipment listed. We'll go ahead and Return twice and then we'll type in the heading for each group, so that each group can create their own list.

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

Creating lists

Now that we have begun editing content inside of our Wiki and we have created a second page, let's go ahead and learn how to create some lists. To do this, let's click on the link for Packing List, so that we are inside of the Packing List page. Next, we'll click on the Edit tab, so that we can continue editing the content inside of the Packing List page. At the end of the line for Packing List, let's type return and give the students some instructions as to what we want them to do. We'll type in Please make a list of all items your group will need to conduct your research in the field. Don't forget any additional materials or parts you will need for any equipment listed. We'll go ahead and Return twice and then we'll type in the heading for each group, so that each group can create their own list.

Let's say we have two different groups of students. The first group, we'll call the Coral Group. We'll add two returns and then type in the name of the second group, which will be the Fish Group. To make these titles headings, we don't necessarily want the headings to be as large as the Packing List heading at the top. So instead of putting three exclamation points, we'll simply add two exclamation points which will tell the Wiki that this is also a heading but it should be the next level down from the Packing List heading. So we'll add the two exclamation points to the beginning of each of our group listings.

Let's go ahead and Preview our page to see what it looks like so far. Click the Preview button at the bottom of your page and we can see now that we have our listing of instructions plus a heading for Coral Group and a heading for Fish Group. Let's go back down to the bottom of our screen, so that we can begin adding a list of items under each group. For the Coral Group, let's click in the blank in between the two groups. Add another Return and then go up and lets begin creating a list. To create a list of items inside of a Wiki, simply type in an asterisk and then type in the first item that you want to have on the list. We know that the Coral Group is going to need some Duct Tape. We'll hit Enter or Return. We'll put another asterisk and they also are going to need some Cable Ties. We'll go ahead and click the Preview button to see how our page look so far and now we can see that under our heading 2 of Coral Group, we have a listing for Duct Tape and Cable Ties with a bullet out in front of the list.

Additional items can simply be added to this list by having another asterisk and then the next item. Let's go ahead and scroll down to the bottom and under the Fish Group we'll show how to create a listing that has sub items underneath of it. So at the end of the line for Fish Group, hit Enter or Return on your keyboard, we'll begin the first listing by again typing an asterisk and then we'll add the listing for Spectrophotometer. Now since the Fish Group is going to need a spectrophotometer, they are also going to need to remember to bring some cuvets with them so that they can run the spectrophotometer. So to do this we'll simply hit Enter or Return and to make a secondary listing of items underneath of the first listing, we ill put two asterisks in the front of the word Cuvets and then Preview that page.

Now we can see that our first bullet of Spectrophotometer is listed out as a first level bullet and then by putting the two asterisks next to Cuvets, it tabs in the secondary listing inside of the first listing. Let's go ahead and scroll back down to the bottom and we'll add the next item that's going to be necessary for the Fish Group. At the end of the word Cuvets, we'll simply hit Enter or Return. Put a single asterisk to go back out to the main listing and then we'll list that the Fish Group is also going to need some Duct Tape and some Cable Ties, putting an asterisk in front of each one.

Now when we click the Save button, now we can see that the Duct Tape and Cable Ties that the Fish Group is going to need is going to be out in the main listing parallel to the Spectrophotometer listing. If your students want to get a little fancier and instead of having simply bullets listed, they could list out a number for each bullet. That's easily done as well. Let's click on the Edit tab again and go back up to the Coral Group and instead of having an asterisk in front of Duct Tape and Cable Ties, we'll get rid of the asterisk and we'll put in a Pound sign. Now when we click the Save button, we have a listing of number 1, Duct Tape, number 2, Cable Ties and the Fish Group still has bullets listed underneath of their various items.

You can even intermix the two by having numbers for the outside listing and bullets for the inside listing or vice versa. To do this simply go back to the Edit tab and in the Fish Group listing, instead of the asterisk for Spectrophotometer, Duct Tape and Cable Ties, let's put Pound signs and one more for Cable Ties. We'll click the Save button and now we can see that our listing is a combination of numbered list and bulleted lists. So by simply marking up each line of text with either an asterisk, a number sign, or multiple levels of exclamation points, we can begin adding a lot of formatting and start segmenting the content inside of our Wiki.
