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.
One of the great new features inside of Moodle 2 is the ability to set a course completion tracking for every type of activity within your course. Unfortunately, there are few settings that need to be created first by your system administrator in order to enable these functions within your course. In this movie we are the logout as our normal user account by clicking on the Logout button in the upper right-hand corner and if you're following along with me, go ahead and click on the Login button in the upper right and Login as the Administrator. The Password we set was 12345, go ahead and click the Login button, and then scroll down on the left-hand column and click on the link for Site administration, then click on the link for Advanced features.
We want to scroll down towards the bottom of the page and we are looking for two specific items. The first is Enable completion tracking, go ahead and check the box, so that that is turned on, and then the next item, Enable conditional access, check that box as well. Go all the way down at the bottom and click the Save changes button. Next, let's go ahead and log out of the administrator account by clicking the Logout button in the upper right and then log back in as ourself, by clicking the Login button, typing in our Username and our Password, the Password for my account if you're following along is 12345, go ahead and click the Login button and now let's go back into our course.
The next step, in turning on Course completion tracking is to go into our Edit settings in the Settings block on the left-hand side. Now when we scroll down in the page, we should find a new section down towards the bottom called Student progress. By default, Completion tracking is set to Disabled, not shown in activity settings, go ahead and click that dropdown menu and check the box for Enabled, control via completion and activity settings. You also want to check the box that says Completion tracking begins on enrollment.
it's a good idea if you plan on using the course completion options to make sure that these settings are set up when you first set up your course, so that tracking is enabled throughout your term. Go ahead and scroll all the way down to the bottom and click the Save changes button. Now when you go back into your course, you have a new option in your Settings block called Completion tracking, we will explore these settings and how to turn on tracking for each individual item, next.
