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.
Now that we have created our database and added our data fields, the next step is to set up the templates that will display the data inside of our database. To do this, make sure you are inside of your database and click on the tab for Templates. A default template is created for you automatically that will have all of the data types and the data fields that have been created as part of your database. This is laid out in a table format and if we click inside of this table, we'll notice that we have seen the controls for table before back when we learned about using tables inside of HTML.
A couple of changes that we want to make here. First of all, is that anytime a scientific name is displayed anywhere, it should be italicized. So we'll go ahead and select the field here inside of the brackets that says Species_Name and simply come up and click the Italicize button. This will make anytime a scientific name is entered, it will be italicized properly. We also want to change the descriptor for this field. Currently, it's set to Species_Name. It would be more descriptive, if we wrote Scientific Name. It's fine to have the common name simply listed without being italicized, but let's go ahead and get rid of the underscore in Common Name. The template is good enough first to get the information that we need out of it. So go ahead and click the button at the bottom that says Save template.
Once the template has been saved, we are able to go over to the list view and see a listing of all of the entries inside of our database. Currently our database doesn't have any data in it. So in the next movie we'll go ahead and add some data into our database.
